By CIOReview | Wednesday, May 6, 2015

RALEIGH, N.C: Red Hat makes available the Red Hat Developer Toolset 3.1, a collection of the latest, stable open source C and C++ compilers and complementary development tools. Users can get it on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Developer Program and related subscriptions.

The toolset streamlines application development on the enterprise Linux platform that allows developers to compile applications once and deploy across multiple versions of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Developers often face the challenge across the open hybrid cloud platform while maintaining a balance with the business’s requirements for stable and reliable applications and systems. New to Red Hat Developer Toolset 3.1 are:

GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) 4.9.2, the latest stable upstream version of GCC, which provides numerous improvements and bug fixes

Eclipse 4.4.2 with support for Java 8 and updated versions of Eclipse CDT (8.6), Eclipse Linux Tools (3.2), Eclipse Mylyn (3.14.2), and Eclipse EGit/JGit (3.6.1)

Additional updated packages, including GDB 7.8.2, elfutils 0.161, memstomp 0.1.5, SystemTap 2.6, Valgrind 3.10.1, Dyninst 8.2.1, and ltrace 0.7.91.

Red Hat Developer Toolset 3.1 allows for the creation of applications compatible with both Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 across physical, virtual and cloud environments, including OpenShift, Red Hat's award-winning Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offering. Delivered on a lifecycle separate from that of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, it helps developers stay abreast the latest innovations while retaining deployment stability.

Jim Totton, Vice President and General Manager, Platforms Business Unit at Red Hat says, “Red Hat Developer Toolset 3.1 helps bridge these needs, delivering developer innovation while retaining a stable foundation for the creation and support of mission-critical applications, helping to bring forth the next-generation of enterprise applications.”
