Red Hat is pleased to announce the general availability of Red Hat 
Software Collections 1.1. Red Hat Software Collections 1.1 delivers a 
comprehensive suite of powerful web development tools, dynamic 
languages, and open source databases to help developers and systems 
administrators accelerate the creation of stable, modern web applications.

Red Hat Software Collections 1.1 offers several new options, including:

  * Two new open source HTTP server options. Apache HTTP Server 2.4 and 
Nginx 1.4.4 (available as a Technology Preview)
  * PHP 5.5, a server-side scripting language designed for web development
  * Ruby 2.0 and Rails 4.0, which for the first time will be packaged 
separately, providing developers with access to an updated version of 
Ruby without requiring the installation of Rails
  * MongoDB 2.4, a high-performance open source document database and 
leading NoSQL database that provides high availability and easy scalability
  * Thermostat 1.0, a tool for monitoring Java virtual machine (JVM) 
instances on multiple hosts
  * Enhancements to the software collections utilities that simplify the 
extension of software collections through the use of dependent collections

Delivered on a separate life cycle from Red Hat Enterprise Linux with a 
more frequent release cadence, Red Hat Software Collections expedites 
the delivery of dynamic languages and open source databases, a 
significant benefit to organizations seeking to accelerate software 
development and deployment through agile methods.  Additionally, 
subscribers deploying applications built using Red Hat Software 
Collections into production can do so with confidence, as individual 
releases of Red Hat Software Collections are supported for three years.

Red Hat Software Collections 1.1 is available now for use with Red Hat 
Enterprise Linux 6 to customers and partners with select active Red Hat 
Enterprise Linux subscriptions.  For more information on how to install
