Open source solutions provider, Red Hat, today announced the launch of its Developer Toolset 3.1, the company's suite of the latest open-source C and C++ compilers and tools.

The bundle is available through the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Developer Programme and related subscriptions.

The toolset is aimed at "streamlining application development on the world's leading enterprise Linux platform, enabling developers to compile applications once and deploy across multiple versions of Red Hat Enterprise Linux", Red Hat said in a statement.

Version 3.1  includes the latest version (4.9.2) of GNU Compiler Collection (GCC); Eclipse 4.4.2 with support for Java 8 and updated versions of Eclipse CDT (8.6), Eclipse Linux Tools (3.2), Eclipse Mylyn (3.14.2), and Eclipse EGit/JGit (3.6.1); and additional updated packages, including GDB 7.8.2, elfutils 0.161, memstomp 0.1.5, SystemTap 2.6, Valgrind 3.10.1, Dyninst 8.2.1, and ltrace 0.7.91.

"Across the open hybrid cloud, developers seek to leverage the latest and greatest development tools, but must balance this with business' requirements for stable and reliable applications and systems," Jim Totton, vice president and general manager, Platforms Business Unit, Red Hat. "Red Hat Developer Toolset 3.1 helps bridge these needs, delivering developer innovation while retaining a stable foundation for the creation and support of mission-critical applications, helping to bring forth the next generation of enterprise applications."
