Just wondering why they don't update to the latest releases of Firefox and OpenOffice when they do these releases? That would give us more reason to upgrade...

As a matter of policy, the 'enterprise' versions (RHEL, and thus Centos which is a direct clone)) do not do version level updates within a distribution release life. With minor exceptions they just backport security and bug fixes to the released version for their updates so there are no surprises or behavior changes. This is good for stability but not so good for features.
