[rhelv6-announce] Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.10 Now Available



We are pleased to announce the availability of Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 6.10, the latest update to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6[1]
platform.  For nearly eight years, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 has
carried our customers’ critical infrastructure because of the
stability, reliability, and platform security that it can offer to the
modern enterprise. Today, we are pleased to announce the release of
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.10, continuing to deliver upon Red Hat’s
10-year lifecycle support.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.10 marks the transition from the
Maintenance Support 1 lifecycle phase to the Maintenance Support 2
phase. In order to help provide customers with a stable environment
for the remainder of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 lifecycle, only
critical security fixes and business-impacting urgent issues have been
addressed.  Examples include the addition of retpoline-based
mitigations for the Spectre/Meltdown vulnerabilities[2], an updated
GNU Compiler Collection (GCC), and rebased gcc-libraries packages.

This release also includes a Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.10 base image
to help enterprises more easily migrate Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6
workloads into container-based applications. These cloud-native
workloads can then be deployed and maintained on a more modern
platform, including Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, Red Hat Enterprise
Linux Atomic Host, and Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform[3].

To make it easier for customers to plan their migration to Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 7, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.10 provides updates to
the Pre-upgrade Assistant, Red Hat Upgrade Tool, and the accompanying
documentation. Learn more about the upgrade process and how to access
these tools on the Red Hat Customer Portal:
