Yesterday, Red Hat announced the official release of RHEL 6.6.

This minor version brings several improvements:

  • The scap-security-guide package has been added providing a convenient and reliable way to verify system compliance on a regular basis,
  • The KeepAlived and HAProxy packages are now fully supported,
  • The System Security Services Daemon (SSSD) package has been updated to make Linux-Windows integration easier: you can now enable a cross-realm Kerberos trust through a RHEL 7 server,
  • The Performance Co-Pilot (PCP) framework for performance monitoring and management has been added: you can now monitor performance across a set of RHEL 6 and 7 servers in a single, consistent approach,
  • The OpenJDK 8 is now available as a technology preview,
  • Various performance improvements coming from RHEL 7 have been also backported.
