This morning Red Hat has announced the release of RHEL 7.4 Beta providing a "rich and stable foundation for both existing applications and a new generation of workloads and solutions".

This release includes the addition of some new features, namely:

Security / Compliance
  • Support for Network Bound Disk Encryption - tooling designed to reduce the management burden of disk encryption at scale.
  • Enhancements to OpenSSL HTTP/2.0 - enabling several new Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol features to be implemented in OpenSSL, such as Application-Layer Protocol Negotiation (ALPN).
  • Updated audit capabilities - designed to make it easier for administrators to filter the events logged by the audit system, gather more information from critical events, and to interpret large numbers of records.
Management / Automation
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux System Roles - provide RHEL-specific supported content that relies on Ansible automation to help simplify the management and maintenance of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7-based deployments via a single set of tools.
Other stand-outs
  • Improvements to RAID Takeover, allowing administrators more control over their logical volumes while they're in use.
  • NetworkManager update - Extended route options for firewall / route-table setup, more..
  • Performance Co-Pilot (PCP) client tools support - pcp2influxdb, pcp-mpstat and pcp-pidstat
