Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 release and what is new features

There are numerous changes in the RHEL 8, those are most developer-friendly capabilities.

As per my knowledge these are kernel 4.18, Repository format has added ‘modules’, YUM works based on DNF and Wayland is the default display server.

Remaining things are usual package updates, which is happening in most of the distributions release.

CentOS is a community supported enterprise operating system, compatible with its upstream source Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

If I’m not wrong, they took around 1 month to complete the build of CentOS 7 from upstream RHEL 7.

So, we can expect the same time frame. i may say, CentOS may be released by mid of June 2019.
