It’s one of those eternal problems between developers and operators that even DevOps can’t entirely solve. System administrators want the most stable operating system possible, while programmers want the latest and greatest development tools. Red Hat‘s solution for this dilemma has been to take those brand spanking-new tools, test them out on the latest stable Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), and then release them to developers.
So it is that Red Hat has just announced its latest toys for developers, Red Hat Developer Toolset 3.1. This packaging of the hottest new tools is now available in beta.
