Red Hat Tools Span RHEL Plus OpenShift

The beta release of Red Hat developer toolset 2.0 arrives this month with new features to develop applications for deployment on both Red Hat Enterprise Linux and on OpenShift. This latest version is designed to enable C and C++ developers to compile once and deploy to multiple versions of Red Hat Enterprise Linux on physical, virtual, and cloud environments.

This beta release of Red Hat Developer Toolset 2.0 is said to accommodate for development agility and production stability; at least this is Red Hat's snappy way of describing what it says are stable versions of essential development tools.

The toolset includes Eclipse 4.3.0 IDE to "weave together" a full set of tools required for software development in the most popular programming languages. Also included here is Dyninst 8.0 to deliver an API for the development of performance measurement tools, debuggers, and simulators — this functions by permitting the insertion of code into a running program.

Red Hat Developer Toolset is available for users who develop applications for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. It includes Strace 4.7, which helps developers debug programs and identify the root cause of crashes or other unexpected behaviors by tracking the system calls made and received by a process. MEMSTOMP provides tools to help identify code with undefined behavior at a lower runtime cost than other tools such as Valgrind.

NOTE: An Updated GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) 4.8 offers enhancements including: improvements in generated code quality on ia32 and x86-64 targets via a new, Red Hat contributed Local Register Allocator; support for the latest C++ language specification; the ability to compile extremely large functions with smaller memory consumption in less time; and support for Hardware Transactional Memory on upcoming CPU architectures.

"In addition to these enhancements, Red Hat Developer Toolset 2.0 also continues to deliver software collections functionality, which enables the concurrent installation of multiple versions of the same RPM packages on a system," says the Red Hat team.
