Re: [PLUG] Red Hat 7.4 Just Released

Nice! Some things that interest me:

* With Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.4, the ansible packages are distributed through the Extras channel.
* NFS server now supports copy-offload, the NFS server-side copy features now provide mechanisms that allow an NFS client to copy file data on a server or between two servers without the need to transmit the data back and forth over the network through the NFS client. (BZ#1356122)
* Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 includes a new multiple-queue I/O scheduling mechanism for block devices known as blk-mq. The scsi-mq package allows the Small Computer System Interface (SCSI) subsystem to make use of this new queuing mechanism. This functionality is provided as a Technology Preview and is not enabled by default. To enable it, add scsi_mod.use_blk_mq=Y to the kernel command line. (BZ#1109348)

OpenSuSE 42.3 was also just released:
