Red Hat is pleased to announce the general availability of Red Hat
Software Collections 1.2. The third installment of Red Hat Software
Collections includes vital open developer tools, such as GCC 4.9, Maven
and Git, and, for the first time, makes the Eclipse IDE available on Red
Hat Enterprise Linux 7. Delivered on a separate lifecycle from Red Hat
Enterprise Linux with a more frequent release cadence, Red Hat Software
Collections is designed to bridge developer agility and production
stability by accelerating the creation of modern applications that can
be confidently deployed into production. New additions include:
* Red Hat Developer Toolset 3.0, a software collection in its own
right, is now included as a component of Red Hat Software Collections.
As with previous releases, Red Hat Developer Toolset ensures that C and
C++ developers are able compile once and deploy to multiple versions of
Red Hat Enterprise Linux. For example, Red Hat Developer Toolset users
can now compile on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 to run on both Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 6 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. Noteworthy updates to
Red Hat Developer Toolset include: GCC 4.9, GDB 7.8, the addition of
ltrace 0.7.91, and a number of additional bug fixes and feature
* The availability of Dockerfiles for some of the most popular
software collections, helping developers to rapidly build and deploy
* DevAssistant 0.9.1, a useful tool for setting up development
environments, publishing code, and completing other associated tasks;
DevAssistant comes with both an intuitive GUI and CLI.
* Maven 3.0, a build automation tool for Java projects that describes
how software is built and all associated dependencies.
* Git 1.9.4, formerly distributed as part of Red Hat Developer
Toolset, has been updated and placed into its own collection enabling
developers to be able to access and install Git without necessarily
having to install Red Hat Developer Toolset.
* An updated release of Nginx 1.6, giving developers access to a fully
supported version of this high performance web server and web proxy.
* The latest stable versions of popular dynamic languages employed to
create modern web-based applications, including Ruby with Rails, Python,
PHP, Perl, as well as a Technology Preview of node.js.
* The latest stable versions of popular open source databases,
including MySQL, PostgreSQL, MariaDB, and MongoDB.
As with previous releases, Red Hat Software Collections can be used to
develop applications for deployment on Red Hat Enterprise Linux, the
world’s leading enterprise Linux platform, and on OpenShift, the leading
Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), offering customers the ultimate
flexibility and choice for development and deployment. In addition,
customers can deploy applications built using Red Hat Software
Collections into production with confidence as most Red Hat Software
Collections components are supported for 3 years.
