It is explicitely written in the CentOS documentation. If the major version
of CentOS is not changed, software is never updated to a new major version
even if it contains known bugs (as was the gace of ghostsvript in CentOS
4.x). The newer TeX Live will appear in CentOS 8.0.
> OTOH Fedora currently has TL2015.
