Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 8.1.0 includes updates to our llvm-toolset, go-toolset, and rust-toolset application streams, which provide developers with up-to-date versions of these compiler toolchains. The upstream projects for these streams move very quickly with new feature releases every six months for LLVM and Go, and every six weeks (!) for Rust. The communities around these toolchains encourage users to users to always stay up-to-date with the latest releases, which is why we try to get new versions into Red Hat Enterprise Linux as quickly as we can.
From a support perspective, we will continue to support these application streams for the entire life of RHEL 8. We will provide new features and bug fixes within the stream by updating to newer upstream releases on a regular basis. For llvm-toolset and go-toolset, you can expect stream updates every six months, and for rust-toolset you can expect updates every three months.
