Red Hat Enterprise Linux Application Streams Life Cycle

Overview

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 introduced the concept of Application Streams - multiple versions of user space components that are delivered and updated more frequently than the core operating system packages. This provides greater flexibility to customize Red Hat Enterprise Linux without impacting the underlying stability of the platform or specific deployments.

Components made available as Application Streams can be packaged as:

  • RPM packages
  • Modules
  • Software Collections

Application Streams are delivered through the AppStream repository. Each Application Stream component has a given life cycle, either the same as the RHEL release or shorter.

Application Streams are available for Red Hat Enteprise Linux 8 and 9.

Details

Application Streams will be available during the Red Hat Enterprise Linux lifecycle. Multiple versions of user space components are delivered and updated more frequently than the core operating system packages. This provides greater flexibility to customize Red Hat Enterprise Linux without impacting the underlying stability of the platform or specific deployments.

For details regarding component lifecycles outside of the Application Streams defined below, please see Red Hat Enterprise Linux Life Cycle.

Releases and Support

Red Hat will support Application Streams for the defined life cycle, after which customers are encouraged either to upgrade to a later release or continue on as self-supported without official Red Hat Support. Application Streams will not have a corresponding Extended Update Support (EUS) nor an Extended Life Cycle Support (ELS) offering.

Retired/Deprecated Application Streams packages do not receive updates or Errata.
