Red Hat Releases Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.1
Release Candidate to Select Partners at Red Hat Summit(PresseBox) (Durham, NC 27713, )
Red Hat is well-known for our collaboration in the upstream community. We have a leadership position in hundreds of open source projects, ranging from the Linux kernel to the GNOME desktop. Our partners are also strong contributors to open source projects. The maturity, market acceptance and community support of Linux drives many IHVs, OEMs and ISVs to develop new functionality and enhance performance first in open source projects. Since there is no single source for these community projects, Red Hat engineering selects mature and stable code from community projects to be included in each major release and following update releases. The work to coordinate different projects can be as simple as selecting the mature code, or as complicated as merging overlapping code sets that were not developed together.
We celebrate the delivery of the Release Candidate for the first update to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 with our partners this week at the Red Hat Summit event taking place in Boston. During the event, there is an extensive lineup of keynotes, sessions and campgrounds featuring Red Hat Enterprise Linux and its industry leadership.
