Rocky Linux, a new Linux distribution built from the source code of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, is the latest option available to all the disenchanted CentOS users whose preferred distribution was abruptly terminated in December 2020. Lead by CentOS founder Gregory Kurtzer, the project has announced its first release candidate for the upcoming version 8.3: “The Rocky Enterprise Software Foundation (RESF) is pleased to announce the general availability of the Rocky Linux 8.3 release candidate 1 for x86_64 and AArch64 architectures. This release is the culmination of months of hard work from every corner of the community. What started in a comment thread on a Red Hat blog in December of 2020 grew to a community over ten thousand strong in a Slack channel in a matter of days. From there you pulled together to build teams around infrastructure, branding, website, development, special interest groups and more. By February of 2021, over 80 million hits had been recorded across various social media platforms and news sites.” Read the rest of the release announcement for more information.
