== What’s new (specific to armhfp)
As before, CentOS 7 userland for armhfp is still built from the CentOS 7
distribution, with some modified, added (or removed) packages.

Here are some highlights for the 7.6.1810 release :
– Even with the release of kernel 4.19.x, we decided to keep kernel 4.14.x
for this release, mainly because it is too new.
– uboot images were updated to version 2018.09 to support more boards
– we have added the “RootFS” image, that some people asked for in the
lists.

I think the most important part of 7.6.1810 is that thanks to the work done
in previous releases, the process to build this version was done
completely on
par with the other arches, without the need for too many special cases, and
that avoids a lot of problems.
