Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 Enters Release Candidate
Fresh off the Red Hat corporate blog comes the news that Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 has made Release Candidate. It’s ready now for partners to play with. Read on for the scoop and what RHEL6 is offering…
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 isn’t just a minor upgrade. Red Hat focused on performance enhancements, better security, ‘new technology’ updates and most recently, certified under the international security standard of “Common Criteria” at Evaluation Assurance Level 4+ (EAL) which translates to being “Methodically Designed, Tested, and Reviewed.”
If you’re inside a “small set of strategic testing partners,” which includes OEM partners and ISVs, you can get your hands on RHEL6 now. Red Hat is encouraging their ISVs to go full force and break in the new system with testing and certification.
Red Hat also…
“…expect[s] no further changes to the ABI or API that might otherwise affect application compatibility as we finalize Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 and make it generally available later this year.”
Red Hat has also cautioned that — like beta release — the RC has no formal support right now, and only the x86 64-bit version is available with the RC.
