The AlmaLinux OS Foundation, stewards of the AlmaLinux distribution — the open source enterprise-grade replacement for CentOS, today announced availability of AlmaLinux OS 8.4 – just one week after the release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 8.4.
“This is our second stable release, since the project was announced in December,” said Jack Aboutboul, community manager of AlmaLinux. “Our community, partners and sponsors all worked together, at warp speed no less, to provide the very latest, best and stable community-driven, governed and free open source alternative to the former incarnation of CentOS.
The open source world was nervously watching the past few months wondering how feasible this new reality would be, and for us to produce something suitable for real-world, actively-running workloads so quickly and efficiently is truly a testament to our provenance, the power of community and the open source model.”
