Karanbir Singh has announced the release of CentOS 5.1, a Linux distribution built by recompiling the source RPM packages for the recently released Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.1: "We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of CentOS-5.1 for the i386 and x86_64 architectures. CentOS-5.1 is based on the upstream release 5.1, and includes packages from all variants including Server and Client. All upstream repositories have been combined into one, to make it easier for end users to work with. And the option to further enable external repositories at install time is now available in the installer. This is the first release where we are also publishing a special 'netinstall' ISO image that can be used to start a remote install." Read the release notes and release notes for further information.
