RALEIGH, N.C. -- September 12, 2013

Red Hat, Inc., (NYSE: RHT), the world's leading provider of open source
solutions, today announced the general availability of Red Hat Developer
Toolset 2.0. Available to all Red Hat customers with an active Red Hat
Enterprise Linux Developer subscription, Red Hat Developer Toolset provides
access to the latest stable versions of open source development tools on a
separate, accelerated life cycle.

Delivering a parallel set of the latest stable tools to those provided with
Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Red Hat Developer Toolset 2.0 introduces new tools
to the content set available with Red Hat Developer Toolset 1.0. This includes
Eclipse 4.3.0, Dyninst 8.0, and Strace 4.7, as well as the GNU Compiler
Collection (GCC) 4.8 update. These additions to version 2.0 allow developers
to use some of the latest innovative tools without dedicating cycles to
installing and troubleshooting unsupported community versions.

Red Hat Developer Toolset enables C, C++, and Fortran developers to compile
once and then deploy across multiple versions of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
There is no need for application re-writes as compatibility is preserved, even
when deploying to newer versions of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Additionally,
the capabilities offered with Red Hat Developer Toolset help developers more
quickly diagnose and debug applications, and even analyze application
performance to isolate memory and management issues.

Red Hat Developer Toolset is available via Red Hat Network for users who
develop applications for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 6. Please see the Red Hat Developer Toolset release notes for support of
specific Red Hat Enterprise Linux releases. Red Hat Developer Toolset is
available through the following subscriptions:

  *Red Hat Enterprise Linux Developer Suite
  *Red Hat Enterprise Linux Developer Support
  *Red Hat Enterprise Linux Developer Workstation
  *Red Hat Enterprise Linux Not-for-resale (NFR) subscriptions for qualifying
  *Red Hat Enterprise Linux North American Academic Site Subscriptions

Red Hat Developer Toolset 2.0 complements the general availability of Red Hat
Software Collections 1.0, which delivers the latest, stable open source
dynamic languages and databases to Red Hat Enterprise Linux subscribers on a
separate, more frequent release cadence.

Developer Toolset, delivering the latest stable C and C++ tools to developers,
helping them to deliver great Linux applications faster, across multiple
versions of Red Hat Enterprise Linux in physical, virtual and cloud
environments. Red Hat Developer Toolset complements Red Hat Software
Collections - a new offering for those seeking updated dynamic languages or
