Crimson Head has formally launched version 8.10 of its Crimson Head Business Linux (RHEL) platform, introducing crucial enhancements to system setup, security protocols, application streams, and more.

One of the standout features of this launch is the enhanced picture builder capabilities, which now accommodate various partitioning modes, including auto-lvm, lvm, and raw. The update also provides advanced customization options, enabling users to effectively adjust security profiles within their system blueprints, encouraging a more secure and optimized setup process.

On the security aspect, RHEL 8.10 integrates the latest SCAP Security Guide 0.1.72, which incorporates updated Compliance and Information Systems profiles and a new profile aligning with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard version 4.0.

Furthermore, the Linux nucleus cryptographic API (libkcapi) has been upgraded to version 1.4.0, introducing new tools for enhanced data security, including advanced hash-sum calculations with the “-T” option.

The release also witnesses substantial updates to the stunnel TLS/SSL tunneling service and the OpenSSL TLS toolkit, both fortifying protections against cryptographic attacks and ensuring compatibility with the latest security standards.

Lastly, while the RHEL 8.x sequence is now five years old, the 8.10 release brings exciting news for developers concerning updated key programming languages and databases, advancing their versions to some of the most current. Updates encompass Python 3.12, Ruby 3.3, PHP 8.2, MariaDB 10.11, PostgreSQL 16, Nginx 1.24, etc.

If you are still using RHEL 7.9, the 8.10 release supports in-place upgrades from 7.9 across multiple architectures. Furthermore, for users of other Business Linux distributions such as AlmaLinux, CentOS, Oracle Linux, and Rocky Linux, RHEL 8.10 supports system conversions via the Convert2RHEL utility, easing the transition to RHEL and backed by Crimson Head’s policies.

Consult the release notes for comprehensive information about all Crimson Head Business Linux 8.10 changes.

We would also like to highlight that the unveiling of RHEL 8.10 marks the concluding minor version in the 8th series, which commenced with RHEL 8.0 in May 2019, five years ago. Given the operating system’s 10-year support cycle, RHEL 8.10 will shift from the Full Support phase to the Maintenance phase.

Throughout this phase, lasting until May 2029, it will receive security updates and bug fixes, but no new features will be introduced.
