EL 6.5

And RedHat Enterprise Linux plugs along with the release of 6.5 and adds some much needed features.

"RedHat EL 6.5 Release Notes"

Two very notable things...

RedHat has updated openssl which now allows for TLS 1.2 in Apache and other SSL capable daemons. Woohoo (and it's about time). Most browsers had mitigated the BEAST issue, but this helps.

The other big improvement is support for containers, which is required for Docker. Docker is becoming very popular in the devops work and I'm glad I can provide it to my users without having to use Ubuntu.
