Twice a year, Red Hat distributes new versions of compiler toolsets, scripting languages, open source databases, and/or 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 (scripting languages, open source databases, web tools, etc.), Red Hat Developer Toolset (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.
The new/updated compiler toolsets are:

One of the new software collections we’ve introduced this fall is for Go, the programming language that aims to make it easy to build simple, reliable, and efficient software. Go is a compiled, statically typed language in the C/C++ tradition with garbage collection, concurrent programming support, and memory safety features.
In go-toolset-7, we’re including everything you need to start programming in Go on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, in the familiar format of software collections. In this release, we’re shipping golang as a Tech Preview. (NOTE: The “-7” in our toolset name is to sync with the other collections now being released, devtoolset-7, rust-toolset-7, and llvm-toolset-7.)

I am pleased to announce the general availability of numerous Red Hat curated collections of the latest, stable application development tools, languages, compilers, databases, and more. Created for Red Hat Enterprise Linux, developers can access these via the following open source offerings:
- Red Hat Software Collections
- Red Hat Developer Toolset
- New RHEL Compilers: Clang/LLVM, Go, and Rust
Components delivered as Linux Containers can also be used on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.

I am pleased to announce immediate availability of Red Hat Developer Toolset 7.0 Beta and three new compiler toolsets for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. Delivered on a separate lifecycle from Red Hat Enterprise Linux with a more frequent release cadence, Red Hat Developer Toolset and compilers bridge development agility and production stability by helping you create performant applications that can be confidently deployed into production.
This beta release brings these exciting new compilers to our Red Hat Enterprise Linux offerings:
- Developer Toolset 7 beta adds a major update of GCC 7.2 and supporting toolchain
- Addition of Clang/LLVM 4.0.1 compiler set – Technology Preview*
- Addition of Go 1.8.3 compiler – Technology Preview*
- Addition of Rust 1.20 compiler – Technology Preview*
Install the new additions via yum install from the new Devtools channel.

I’m working on the upstream fabric8-wit project of openshift.io. In this Go project, we embrace testing as best as we can in order to deliver a stable component. Testing acts as our safety net to allow for fast-paced feature development. This blog post is about our recent change in our testing strategy. It is not as boring as it might sound at first. 😉

Why use RPMs (distribution packages in general) at all ?!
Distribution RPMs enables you to get signed curated content, with security updates, bug fixes, general updates, some level of testing, and known ways of reproducing the build locally. Of course, it has its cost mostly in the package size overhead and packaging infrastructure overhead (yum, dnf, apt….).

The Kubernetes client package for Go provides developers with a vast range of functions to access data and resources in a cluster. Taking advantage of its capabilities can allow the opportunity to build powerful controllers, monitoring and managing your cluster, beyond the scope of what is offered by stock OpenShift or Kubernetes setups.
For example, the PodInterface allows you to list, update, delete, or get specific pods either by namespace or across all namespaces. This interface is complemented by similar implementations for many other cluster resource types such as ReplicationControllers and ResourceQuotas.
