Parent article: CentOS 5.3 released
Pretty late .. I heard that 5.3 was this late because Karanbir Singh was on honeymoon and nobody else (w|c)ould do the work.
And that CentOS4 didn't get security updates the last months (eg.Kernel: 2.6.9-78.0.17.EL (RHEL), 2.6.9-78.0.13.EL (CentOS))
That would mean that you can only use the latest CentOS release and CentOS would loose on the long support advantage, because you have to upgrade to each new release every 3 years (or so).
