Rocky Linux 9.0, the latest version of the open source enterprise OS designed to be fully bug-for-bug compatible with Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), is now generally available. The update includes new security and networking features, and a new open source build system called Peridot.

Released July 14, Rocky Linux 9.0 has all of the build chain infrastructure tools for developers to pick up Rocky Linux or extend or reproduce the OS, should a developer want to do something independently of the community or any upstream supporting organisation. 

A primary goal behind developing the new, cloud-native build system was assuring that new versions of Rocky can be released within one week of new RHEL version releases, project representatives said.

Source code for Peridot can be found on GitHub and will soon be easily installable via Helm charts. Downloads of Rocky Linux are available at rockylinux.org. 

Hosted by the Rocky Enterprise Software Foundation (RESF), Rocky Linux was created by one of the original CentOS founders, CIQ CEO Gregory Kurtzer, to achieve the original goal of CentOS to serve as a production-ready downstream version of RHEL.
