IBM BigFix Patch is pleased to announce the support for custom repository 
to facilitate patching for endpoints on CentOS Linux version 5 and later.
Through the CentOS Custom Repository Management dashboard, users of the 
following native tools sites can now register their custom repositories 
with BigFix: 
Patches for CentOS 5 Native tools 
Patches for CentOS 6 Native tools 
Patches for CentOS 7 

With the custom repository support, users can use YUM to download patches 
from the local repositories and distribute them to CentOS endpoints. Users 
can also leverage their custom repositories to deliver custom software 
through BigFix.
In this release, BigFix also provides the YUM Transaction History 
dashboard where users can view all YUM-related transactions in a single 
view. This dashboard is also equipped with transaction management features 
such as rollback, undo, and redo.
