The RHEL 6.9 distribution has just been released and brings the following main benefits:

  • TLS 1.2 support has been added to all system components,
  • several SSSD improvements have been made in connection with AD forests and PAM services,

You will find all the details in the RHEL 6.9 Releases Notes & RHEL 6.9 Technical Notes.

In addition, on May 10, 2017, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 enters Production Phase 3, meaning that subsequent updates to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 will be limited to qualified critical security fixes and business-impacting urgent issues.

Finally, according to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux lifecycle, RHEL 6 will be supported until at least November 2020.
