The CentOS project is beginning to produce monthly re-spins of CentOS 7 that contain all of the updated packages introduced this month. This new CentOS Linux rolling media approach will make it easier to install a fully-updated EL7 system with having to install just minimal updates after the installation.

Today was the first rolling media release of the CentOS 7 ISO install media and generic cloud images. The CentOS Linux rolling builds are aimed to be updated at the end of every month to incorporate all updated EL7 packages of general enhancements, security fixes, and bug fixes.

More information on the new CentOS 7 rolling media can be found via this release announcement by Karanbir Singh of CentOS.
