The CentOS community edition from the sources of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) is described as a "stable, predictable, manageable, and reproducible platform" [1]. With this release, the updates repo disappears: All updates land either in BaseOS, AppStream, or both, as they are built and tested and then pushed to the mirrors [2]. Also new in release 8:

  • OS and Kickstart directories for each architecture
  • System-wide cryptographic policy customization
  • Supports OpenSSL 1.1.1 and TLS 1.3
  • nftables, chrony, and updated software throughout
  • Centralized logging with the systemd journald daemon
