== 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 7.3.1611 release :
– Kernel (for both rpi2/2 and generic boards) was bumped to 4.4.x (LTS
version) to also follow the i386 AltArch kernel.
– uboot images were updated to version 2016.09
– rootfs-resize (unmaintained) had issue when resizing FS bigger than
32Gb, and has been replaced by cloud-utils-growpart
– default image[s] for rpi2/rpi3 now also support selinux directly
