I just want to know when an official version of CentOS is released that has the meltdown/spectre mitigations in it so I can make a new server with *that* version. Is there a notification list or something that will tell me that?

Thanks in advance.

It already is. Just run yum update to get up to date.
CentOS 5 died in March 2017 - migrate NOW!
