It’s been an unusual long time between releases – but now nearly eleven months after the last release Red Hat has announced the availability of RHEL 6.6. The kernel level is now kernel-2.6.32-504.el6, for the main bug fixes see the kernel update description.
For System z this has been a mainly a fix
release. Only a few small enhancements have been added all described in
the technical notes. Here are some of them:
- libhugetlbfs support for System z
- crypto updates: libica, opencryptoki
- read only sequential data set access avoiding ftp/nfs transfers from z/OS using the zdfs file system
The IBM documentation for RHEL 6.4 on developerworks still applies for this release.
