Linux News Today: Red Hat Software Collections 2.2 and Developer Toolset 4.1 Officially Released
Red Hat, Inc., the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, was proud to announce the general availability of its Red Hat Software Collection 2.2 and Red Hat Developer Toolset 4.1.
These are the final releases of the Red Hat Software Collections 2.2 and Red Hat Developer Toolset 4.1, after they’ve been in development for the past month. The Betas were released at the beginning of May, so most of the developers that had access to Red Hat’s Customer Portal could test them and report bugs or submit feature requests.
Major new features implemented in Red Hat Software Collections 2.2 include support for new open-source databases, such as MariaDB 10.1, PostgreSQL 9.5, and MongoDB 3.2, support for several new open-source programming languages like Python 3.5, Ruby 2.3, Rails 4.2, Maven 3.3, and Node.js v4.4, as well as many other updated components, including Apache 2.4, MongoDB 2.6, Thermostat 1.4, and Python 2.7.
“Backed by Red Hat’s enterprise-grade support and our robust technology portfolio, the latest installment of Red Hat Software Collections helps developers gain access to the latest stable builds of needed tools while holding true to the requirements of the broader business for stable, supported production applications,” said Jim Tottonvice, President and General Manager, Platforms Business Unit, Red Hat.

Now that we’ve told you what’s new in the Red Hat Software Collections 2.2 release, let’s have a quick look at the new features implemented by the Red Hat engineers in Red Hat Developer Toolset 4.1. Probably the most important one is support for the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) 5.3, but we can’t help but notice that GNU Project Debugger (GDB) 7.11 and Eclipse IDE 4.5.2 are supported as well in this new version.
Lastly, Red Hat Developer Toolset 4.1 comes packed with a multiple updated performance tools and toolchain components, among which we can mention SystemTap 2.9 and Dynist 9.1. Both Red Hat Software Collections 2.2 and Red Hat Developer Toolset 4.1 are now available for all customers that have an active subcription. They are accessible from the Red Hat Customer Portal, where you’ll also find Dockerfiles and Docker-formatted images.
