The CentOS Project is pleased to announce the immediate availability of CentOS 7 for x86_64, including images for docker, and various cloud providers. There are many fundamental changes in this release, compared to previous releases of CentOS. Notably the inclusion of systemd, Gnome3, and a default filesystem of XFS. For more information about what makes CentOS 7 stand out, please see our release notes.

CentOS 6 can be upgraded to 7, but that functionality is still being tested.

Disagree. The new Anaconda is slow, unresponsive, unintuitive, and lacking in features. For example, try installing Fedora 20 on a system with an existing partition layout without formatting the root filesystem. If you can figure out how to tell the installer that's what you want, it'll helpfully refuse to let you do it with no real reason (except that the installer is specifically designed not to let you).
