About Software Collections

Twice a year, Red Hat distributes new versions of compiler toolsets, scripting languages, open source databases, web tools, etc., so that application developers will have access to the latest stable versions. These Red Hat-supported offerings are packaged as Red Hat Software Collections, Red Hat Developer Toolset with GCC, and the recently added compiler toolsets Clang/LLVM, Go, and Rust. All are yum installable, and are included in most Red Hat Enterprise Linux subscriptions and all Red Hat Enterprise Linux Developer Subscriptions.

Most Red Hat Software Collections and Red Hat Developer Toolset components are also available as Linux container images for hybrid cloud development across Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, etc.
