ClearOS did a good job with the 7.3 release - let's hope it goes smoothly for ClearOS 6.9 :)

Notice a lot of the updated packages are already in the clearos-test repository...

    In case anyone looks at this thread, I've just tried it on my VM and it failed first go because of dependency issues (I have a load of development tools installed). To fix it I updated all the app- packages first. app-base often sorts out repo bits, then a yum update worked as normal:
    yum update app*
    yum update
