The Red Hat Enterprise Linux team is pleased to announce the release of 
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.7, the latest version of our Red Hat 
Enterprise Linux 6 platform. Nearly five years into its lifecycle, Red 
Hat Enterprise Linux 6 continues to provide a stable, proven, and 
predictable foundation for organizations seeking to build and deploy 
large, complex IT projects with confidence.

Emphasizing the platform's commitment to stable and secure enterprise 
systems, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.7 helps prevent data leakage by 
allowing read-only mounting of removable media. In addition, this latest 
release includes the Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP) 
Workbench, an easy-to-use tool that functions as a SCAP scanner and 
delivers tailored SCAP content functionality.

To enhance the reliability of IT deployments, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 
6.7 is compatible with Red Hat Access Insights, a new hosted service 
from Red Hat designed to help customers proactively identify and resolve 
issues that could impact business operations. Leveraging the extensive 
knowledge of Red Hat Certified Engineers and Red Hat's award-winning 
customer support team, Red Hat Access Insights alerts IT administrators 
to potential problems, like configuration issues or vulnerabilities, and 
provides a dashboard to help identify, understand and correct these 
issues before any disruption occurs.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.7 also incorporates many of the latest, 
stable open source technologies, allowing enterprises to confidently 
deploy recent innovations across physical, virtual and cloud 
environments. One example is clufter, a tool for analyzing and 
transforming cluster configuration formats. Available as a technology 
preview, clufter enables system administrators to update existing 
high-availability configurations to run on the latest high-availability 
tools from Red Hat. LVM Cache, formerly available as a technology 
preview, is now a fully supported feature, allowing users to maximize 
the performance benefits of SSD-based storage for their business needs 
while limiting associated costs.

Also notable, a Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.7 base image is now available 
via the Red Hat Customer Portal, enabling Red Hat customers to transform 
traditional workloads into container-based applications that are 
suitable for deployment on Red Hat certified container hosts, including 
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, Red Hat Enterprise Linux Atomic Host, and 
OpenShift Enterprise 3 by Red Hat.
