The beta version of the upcoming Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.2 operating system is now available. RHEL 8.2 Beta comes packed with six months’ worth of updates from Red Hat to make it easier for IT organizations to adopt new, production-ready innovations faster.
RHEL 8.2 is said to drive enhancements to the user experience for both new and existing customers. It not only extends monitoring and performance capabilities but also adds new supported developer languages and tools. To streamline how new and existing users register a RHEL subscription, RHEL 8.2 Beta makes subscription registration a step in the installation process.
The beta version also adds new capabilities to help IT operations teams and administrators better control the lifecycle of their RHEL estate. Moreover, RHEL 8.2 Beta adds tighter integration with the extended Berkeley Packet Filter (eBPF) across all supported architectures.
According to Red Hat, RHEL 8.2 Beta should help its hardware partners more quickly deliver supported hardware configurations, furthering customer choice for their datacenter estates.
