Re: CentOS 7.7 latest patches

I think it's time to migrate to latest centos 8 just to be sure but hoping there will be more patches in 7.
CentOS 7 will receive patches for nearly 4 more years.

What it won't do is provide patches for outdated point releases. That's always been the way it works - only the current point release gets patches and people running older ones (i.e anyone on 7.7 or less currently) will be told to update to $latest.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!

CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.
