check available version of package for upgrade



When doing an upgrade from yum, i just key-in "yum upgrade packagename". But what was installed is a different version, which I assume is the latest available for that package. Is there a way I can search or see what are the available versions of a certain package? just in case I want an upgrade to certain version, but not to the lastest one.





yum update  && yum search appname


it gives the list of packages, but the version isn't there. say for example, php.


# yum update && yum search php


current versions is - PHP 5.1.6 .


I want to upgrade it to php5.2.x.. but before doing so, I want to see what's the exact version available before I will proceed with the upgrade.
