I just want to know when an official version of CentOS is released that has the meltdown/spectre mitigations in it so I can make a new server with *that* version. Is there a notification list or something that will tell me that?

Thanks in advance.

It already is. Just run yum update to get up to date.
CentOS 6 died in November 2020 - migrate to a new version!

CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.
