Announcing Software Collection Library 3.2 for Oracle Linux

Avi Miller
Director of Product Management, Oracle Linux

We are pleased to announce the release of the Software Collection Library 3.2 to the Unbreakable Linux Network and the Oracle Linux yum server.

Software collections are primarily intended for development environments which require access to the latest features of software components such as Perl, PHP, or Python. For these environments, you need to minimize the disruption of system processes that rely on the versions of these components. The Software Collections library allows you to install and use several versions of the same software on a system, simultaneously, and without disruption.

You use the software collection library utility (scl) to run the developer tools from the software collections that you have installed. The scl utility isolates the effects of running these tools from other versions of the same software utilities that you have installed.
