    Looks like Linux Kernel bumps from 2.6.32 to 3.10 and XFS filesystem by default for RH EL7

    No idea but this is CentOS 7 dev blog at http://seven.centos.org for news which I am watching for CentOS 7 :D

    edit: http://seven.centos.org/2014/06/congratulations-to-red-hat-for-rhel7/

    Oracle Linux 7 beta has been available for some time at https://blogs.oracle.com/linux/entry/oracle_linux_7_beta_is

    Exciting times ahead as Centmin Mod currently works with CentOS 6.x and Oracle Linux 6.x since .06 stable release http://centminmod.com/changelog.html#123eva200006.

    So will be testing Centmin Mod compatibility with CentOS 7.x and Oracle Linux 7.x whenever they're ready as well :D

    Looks like Redhat Exterprise Linux 7 will only be supplying a 64bit installer and removing the 32bit installer see http://www.karan.org/blog/2013/12/15/where-is-the-i686-in-rhel-7/ and https://access.redhat.com/site/solutions/509373.

    I know for a fact though that Oracle Linux 7 will have both 32bit and 64bit ISO images so at least if you are currently on a CentOS 6.x 32bit low memory based VPS, you have one avenue to continue with 32bit environment.

    Now CentOS 7 whether they offer both 32bit and 64bit installers remains to be seen.

    So does Centos 7 will use the new kernel 3.10?

    That's good news to use a new kernel....

    Not so good for static files serving and Apache?

    Yeah CentOS 7 will use 3.10 kernel but those benchmarks are on RC1 and beta versions so hard to say until more folks benchmark it
