[RDD] Appliance Versions...

Always the Paravel Site.  I check it periodically for newer appliance 

I realize that is was kind of a pointless question to ask, but there was 
a reason...

My VERY FIRST appliance (appliance v 1.0) Shipped with RD 2.5.5 on 
CentOS 5.9.  I had to install a proprietary video driver to make use of 
dual monitors.  On a system update, I found myself in a pickle, unable 
to boot to the GUI (probably due to a kernel update with proprietary 
driver installed?).  Not familiar with Linux I had no choice but to 

I have since disabled updates (a poor practice I know) when installing 
from the Appliance.

I only have ONE Rivendell out in the wild, but I want to become more 
familiar with it, and CentOS in general.

Anyway, the next appliance was RD 2.5.5 on CentOS 6.4 (what my one 
machine in the wild is on).
Then there was another appliance that was RD 2.5.5 on CentOS 6.5
and the current one which is RD 2.5.5 on CentOS 6.6

Just wondering if on the next appliance "refresh" the version of RD will 
be incremented.  This is pretty much a question for Mr. Gleason.
