We’ve added a new distribution image, CentOS 8 Stream. From the Release Notes: “CentOS Stream is a rolling-release Linux distro that exists as a midstream between the upstream development in Fedora Linux and the downstream development for Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL).”

The major difference between CentOS 8 and CentOS 8 Stream is a newer kernel.

We are not offering a netboot installer for CentOS 8 Stream, on account of this upstream bug. We’ll add it as soon as package updates are pulled from the 8-stream release channel. However, an installable tarball is available from the “install new OS image” menu of the management console.

We also rebuilt our Arch Linux tarball and install ISO with the 2019.12.01 update from Arch Linux.

All of the updates are only available for VPSes with HVM virtualization. The VPS virtualization is displayed under “system details” when logged into the management console. If the system virtualization is not HVM, please contact support for a conversion.
