Other upgrades include a newer version of the wireless drivers suite, including the ath9k and iwlwifi drivers. GDB, Valgrind, and SystemTap also have been updated. The Live CD has been released in version 5.5 to reflect these changes.

For developers, version 4.4 of gcc is available. For the first time, the LiveCD has been released at the same time as the corresponding point release of CentOS.
