Red Hat simplifies container development and redistribution of Red Hat Enterprise Linux packages

Red Hat simplifies container development and redistribution of Red Hat Enterprise Linux packages

Application developers in the Red Hat Partner Connect program can now build their container apps and redistribute them from the full set of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) user space packages (non-kernel). This nearly triples the number of packages over UBI only.

When we introduced Red Hat Universal Base Images (UBI) in May 2019, we provided Red Hat partners the ability to freely use and redistribute a substantial number of RHEL packages that can be deployed on both Red Hat and non-Red Hat platforms. This gave developers the ability to build safe, secure, and portable container-based software that could then be deployed anywhere. The feedback on this has been overwhelmingly positive and we thank you for it, but we learned that you needed more, so we’re sharing this advanced preview with Red Hat Partner Connect members to help you with your planning. 

Expanded and exclusive redistribution rights for Red Hat Technology Partners

We are pleased to announce expanded partner terms and conditions that grant Red Hat Technology Partners free use and redistribution rights to all Red Hat Enterprise Linux user space packages when you build upon UBI-based images. With more than triple the number of RHEL packages now available, you can simplify your container and Operator development and freely re-distribute your container-based software through both Red Hat and non-Red Hat registries. This is only available to Red Hat partners who participate in and complete Red Hat Container Certification.

Introducing new Red Hat Enterprise Linux certification for software partner products

Introducing new Red Hat Enterprise Linux certification for software partner products

We are pleased to announce an improved software certification for Red Hat partner products built for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 (RHEL 8). This new RHEL software certification validates the use of common best practices, improves joint supportability, and promotes your product in the new Red Hat Ecosystem Catalog.

What is this certification?

This certification now features a partner executable test suite that produces results that are then reviewed by Red Hat. Your non-containerized software is certified when the test results show successful interoperability with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 in a secure, supportable manner using best practices. Once verified, you can promote your product(s) in the Red Hat Ecosystem catalog.

In addition, Red Hat will grant partners a complimentary Limited membership to TSANet for collaborative customer case management to improve their ongoing user experiences.

OpenShift Connector: Visual Studio Code extension for Red Hat OpenShift

OpenShift Connector: Visual Studio Code extension for Red Hat OpenShift

The new release of Red Hat OpenShift 4.2 has many developer-focused improvements. In that context, we have released a new version of OpenShift Connector 0.1.1, a Visual Studio (VS) Code extension with more improved features for a seamless developer experience. Developers can now focus on higher-level abstractions like their application and components and can drill down deeper to get to the OpenShift and Kubernetes resources that make up their application directly from VS Code.

Let’s take a deep tour of the new features with respect to OpenShift Connector.

Changes to CentOS: What CentOS Stream means for developers

Changes to CentOS: What CentOS Stream means for developers

Today Chris Wright, vice president and CTO at Red Hat, published a post describing how CentOS is changing and the opportunities it opens for developers in the Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) ecosystem. The net effect of this change is that, in addition to CentOS Linux 8, there is a new version of CentOS—CentOS Stream—which will provide a “rolling preview” of future Red Hat Enterprise Linux kernels and features. This is being announced in addition to the release of the traditional CentOS Linux 8, which is a downstream rebuild of the current RHEL release.
