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.

No software raid tools


Except, software is available during install. Just make sure to create a /boot partition - Anaconda will automatically confine it to the boot device so booting works.

No add on repos


Except, if you go into the sources section of the install, it lets you add some.

the list of software groups is incomplete


Not exactly sure what you mean by that, but I'll take your word for it.

No specific package adding/deletion


Okay. Maybe not individual packages, but plenty of sub groups are available. For example, the Virtualization Host group has add-ons for:
Network File System clients
Remote Management for Linux
Virtualization Platform
Compatibility Libraries
Development Tools
Smart Card Support

One big one that I miss is being able to do a virt host install. Virtualization is not in the group list.


Except, it totally is in the list.
