Following the release of CentOS 6.2 in late December 2011, you can now deploy servers running the latest version of this popular Linux distribution in just a few seconds.
CentOS 6.2 is based on the upstream release EL 6.2 and includes packages from all variants. Read the full release notes.
Importantly. CentOS 6.2 extends ‘end of life’ to November 2017, meaning it will continue to receive updates some three years beyond the previous version. CentOS 5.7 will stop receiving updates in May 2014.
