On the heels of our recently announcement, General Availability of Clang/LLVM 6.0, Go 1.10, and Rust 1.29, I want to share how we’ll be supporting them going forward. Previously, these packages had been in “Technology Preview” status, which means that they were provided for “you to test functionality and provide feedback during the development process”, and were “not fully supported under Red Hat Subscription Level Agreements, may not be functionally complete, and are not intended for production use”.
So now that we’ve promoted them to fully supported status, what does that mean? In the simplest terms, General Availability (GA) means that these packages have officially entered the “Full Support Phase” of their lifecycle:

I’m extremely pleased to announce the release of Red Hat Container Development Kit (CDK) 3.5 and Red Hat Developer Studio 12. Whether you are developing traditional or cloud-based applications and microservices, you can run these tools on your Windows, macOS, or Red Hat Enterprise Linux laptop to streamline development:
- Red Hat Container Development Kit provides a pre-built container development environment to help you develop container-based applications quickly using Red Hat OpenShift and Kubernetes.
- Red Hat Developer Studio (previously named JBoss Developer Studio) provides a desktop IDE with superior support for your entire development lifecycle. It includes a broad set of tooling capabilities and support for multiple programming models and frameworks. Developer Studio provides broad support for working with Red Hat products and technologies including middleware, business automation, and integration, notably Camel and Red Hat Fuse. Developer Studio is based on Eclipse 4.8 (Photon).
A number of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) development tools have been updated. These include Rust 1.26.1, Go 1.10.2, Cargo 1.26, and Eclipse 4.8 (Photon).
Our goals are to improve usability of our tools for developers, while adding new features that matter most for users of Red Hat platforms and technologies.
Overview of new features:

We are pleased to announce the general availability of:
- Red Hat Software Collections 3.1 (including Ruby 2.5, Perl 2.26, PHP 7.0.27, PostgreSQL 10, MongoDB 3.6, Varnish 5, HAProxy 1.8, Apache 2.4 update)
- Red Hat Developer Toolset 7.1 (GCC 7.3)
- Clang/LLVM 5.0, Go 1.8.7, Rust 1.25.0

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:

The GNU Toolchain is a collection of programming tools produced by the GNU Project. The tools are often packaged together due to their common use for developing software applications, operating systems, and low-level software for embedded systems.
This blog is part of a series (see: Fall 2017 Update) covering the latest changes and improvements in the components that make up this Toolchain. Apart from the announcement of new releases, the features described here are at the bleeding edge of software development in the tools. This means that it may be awhile before they make it into production releases, and they might not be fully functional yet. But anyone who is interested in experimenting with them can build their own copy of the Toolchain and then try them out.

What is Rust?
Rust is a systems programming language that runs blazingly fast, prevents segfaults, and guarantees thread safety.
- zero-cost abstractions
- move semantics
- guaranteed memory safety
- threads without data races
- trait-based generics
- pattern matching
- type inference
- minimal runtime
- efficient C bindings

One of the new software collections we’ve introduced this fall is for Rust, the programming language that aims for memory and thread safety without compromising performance. Dangling pointers and data races are caught at compile time, while still optimizing to fast native code without a language runtime!
In rust-toolset-7, we’re including everything you need to start programming in Rust on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, in the familiar format of software collections. In this release, we’re shipping Rust 1.20 and its matching Cargo 0.21 – both as Tech Preview. (NOTE: The “-7” in our toolset name is to sync with the other collections now being released, devtoolset-7, go-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.
