We are pleased to announce the general availability of Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 7.4, the latest version of our Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 7 platform.  With significant enhancements to security,
performance, and support for Linux containers, Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 7.4 continues to pair open source innovation with
enterprise-grade stability - providing enterprises with a rich and
stable foundation for both existing applications and a new generation
of workloads and solutions.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.4 includes hundreds of new and improved
features.  While it’s not practical to review each and every
enhancement in this announcement - highlights include:
  * Updated audit capabilities to help simplify how administrators
filter the events logged by the audit system, gather more information
from critical events and to interpret large numbers of records.
  * USB Guard, a feature that allows for greater control over how
plug-and-play devices can be used to help limit both data leaks and
data injection.
  * Support for NVMe Over Fabric helps to provide customers with
increased flexibility and reduced overhead when accessing high
performance NVMe storage devices located in the data center on both
Ethernet or Infiniband fabric infrastructures.
  * General enhancements to Red Hat Enterprise Linux’s performance
when deployed on the public cloud, highlighted by decreased boot times
to better enable mission-critical applications to start sooner, and
support for the Elastic Network Adapter (ENA) on Amazon Web Services
(AWS) to enable new network capabilities.
  * Support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux System Roles as a Technology
Preview[1] to provide a common management interface across all major
versions of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
