[rhelv6-announce] Latest Version of Red Hat Software Collections Now Available

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 enhancements.

* The availability of Dockerfiles for some of the most popular software collections, helping developers to rapidly build and deploy containerized applications.

* 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.

Red Hat Software Collections 1.2 is available now for use with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 to customers and partners with select active Red Hat Enterprise Linux subscriptions.
