AlmaLinux 9.1 Released
HPCWire, November 17th, 2022
The AlmaLinux OS Foundation, the nonprofit that stewards the community owned and governed open source CentOS replacement AlmaLinux, is releasing AlmaLinux 9.1

AlmaLinux 9.1 provides a more stable foundation for open hybrid cloud innovation, new enhancements and features to deliver workloads, applications and services for multiple environments more efficiently. Security features are focused on risk reduction and better compliance maintenance. AlmaLinux 8.7 was released last week.

AlmaLinux 9.1 is 1:1 binary compatible with RHEL, and the distributed Linux kernel version is 5.14.0-160.el9. AlmaLinux 9.1 supports 4 architectures: x86_64, aarch64, ppc64le and s390x. AlmaLinux 9.1 is ready for production installations.


These traditional Linux utilities have been revitalized with modern replacements.

Linux has a good track record for software support. There are about 60 commands in man section 1 of Unix 1st edition, and the majority still work today. Still, progress stops for no one. Thanks to vast global participation in open source, new commands are frequently developed. Sometimes a new command gains popularity, usually because it offers new features, or the same features but with consistent maintenance. Here are ten old commands that have recently been reinvented.

Red Hat released Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.7 as the latest update to their Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 operating system series to bring more new features, updated components, and other changes.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.7 is here six months after Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.6 and introduces new capabilities like the ability to view and manage system-wide crypto policies for consistency and reduction of risk, support for editing custom firewall services, as well as to label and encrypt data in sosreports.

This release also improves the kernel live patching workflow by allowing you to install only kpatch updates in the web console, and makes it possible to download the Red Hat Enterprise Linux installation media when you try to create a new virtual machine in the web console.


Red Hat Enterprise Linux 9.1 and 8.7 extend greater flexibility, reliability and stability as a backbone for hybrid cloud innovation, from the datacenter to public clouds to the edge.

Red Hat, the world's leading provider of open source solutions, introduced Red Hat Enterprise Linux 9.1, the latest version of the world's leading enterprise Linux platform. Along with the recently announced Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.7, these minor versions add and refine capabilities for a wide range of enterprise IT needs, from helping to streamline complex infrastructure environments to improving the security stance of containerized applications.
