What are the new features of RHEL7.7 and when will be the final release of RHEL7.7


Hi Kailas,

You will find information about new features (and everything else) in the RHEL 7.7 Beta Release Notes.
When will the final edition being made generally available ? As always : "It's ready when it's ready !" ... :D
Red Hat does not (and never did) provide official statements about final release dates before a release.


Yeah! RHEL 8 took almost 6 months to get out of Beta! And RHEL 8 took 6 years to get released after RHEL 7 which was the longest release.

Hi Venkat,

I assume it won't take that long this time, as the jump from 7.6 to 7.7 is a minor point release. :)


I did a quick look at past time scales and the gap between a point release beta and the full release and I would estimate around 2 or 3 months in this case, but we won't know for certain until it is actually released.
