CentOS Stream 8 EOL - May 31, 2024

This announcement is a friendly reminder that, as you may be aware, the CentOS 8 Stream Build ends on May 31, 2024.

CentOS Stream 8 End of Builds: May 31, 2024

We expect this to correspond roughly to the release of RHEL 8.10. CentOS Stream 8 is where new features are developed for RHEL 8. With the release of RHEL 8.10, RHEL 8 will be considered largely feature complete.

When we announced CentOS Stream we noted that it was designed to serve "as the upstream (development) branch of Red Hat Enterprise Linux." With RHEL 8 transitioning to Maintenance phase, CentOS Stream 8 has fulfilled its purpose.

After May 31, 2024, CentOS Stream 8 will be archived and no further updates will be provided. Additionally, the packages will be archived on vault.centos.org after May 31, 2024, which will cause yum and dnf commands to be misconfigured and fail.
