CentOS 5.3 released
The CentOS developers have released version 5.3 for i386 and x86-64 architectures. CentOS 5.3 is a free Linux distribution based on the source of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3 (RHEL). The 5.3 release includes several changes over version 5.2 including both new and updated packages based on RHEL 5.3 and custom changes by the CentOS developers.
Due to a large number of user requests, Version 5.3 sees the return of the Contribs Repository, a repository of user contributed packages hosted within the CentOS repositories. There are currently no packages in the repository, however, there should be a policy and process in place "over the next few weeks" to allow users to submit and manage packages.
