Software Collections 2.0.  Delivered on a separate lifecycle from Red 
Hat Enterprise Linux with a more frequent release cadence, Red Hat 
Software Collections expedites the delivery of essential web development 
tools, dynamic languages, and open source databases. As these updated 
components can be installed alongside versions included in base Red Hat 
Enterprise Linux, Red Hat Software Collections is designed to bridge 
developer agility and production stability by accelerating the creation 
of production-ready, modern applications.

New collections include: Python 3.4, PHP 5.6, Perl 5.20, Ruby 2.2 and 
Rails 4.1, MySQL 5.6, MariaDB 10, PostgreSQL 9.4, MongoDB 2.6, and 
Passenger 4.0.

Maven 3.0, DevAssistant 0.9.3, and a (now) fully supported version of 
Node.js 0.10.33.

In addition, Dockerfiles[1] have been made available for the most 
popular software collections, helping developers to rapidly build and 
deploy containerized applications.

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
