CentOS Linux 7 (1611) Released, It’s Derived from Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.3

As Red Hat announced last month the release of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.3 operating system, it was clear that a new CentOS Linux 7 release is being prepared by Karanbir Singh and the rest of the awesome developers behind this Open Source initiative built on top of the freely distributed sources of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Tagged as build 1611, the new CentOS Linux 7 maintenance update is here as a replacement for the April 2016 release of CentOS Linux 7 (1603) ISO images. Among the changes, we can mention the inclusion of new packages, such as Qt 5, Pidgin, python-gssapi, python-netifaces, and mod_auth_openidc.
