Insight: CentOS 8 Release Date Timeline

RHEL 8 or Red Hat Enterprise Linux was released on May 7th, 2019. You might be wondering why we are sharing the released date of RedHat 8 as you should know that CentOS is compatible with its upstream source Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

A CentOS major release takes a lot of planning and changes in tooling as it is based on a much newer version of Fedora than previous versions.
