We apologize for the delay in getting this release out the door. As a bonus for the wait we have AMIs that are available in additional regions (ap-northeast-2, ap-south-1). We’ll be adding additional regions (the remaining missing regions) next release.

Additionally, this will most likely be our last release of Fedora 27 Atomic Host. Very soon Fedora 28 will be released and we will be picking up with our releases in the Fedora 28 stream. We will have plenty of announcements and content around Fedora 28 release time so watch this space for that!

Open Source, What a Concept!

I recently joined Red Hat after many years working for another tech company whose three character symbol most would recognize, but I won’t name. While there, I developed a number of different software products that were all very successful in their spaces, but all very proprietary. Not only were we legally compelled to not share the software outside of the company, we often times didn’t share it within the company. To me at the time, that made complete sense. The company spent the time, energy and budget on developing the software, so they should then protect and then claim the rewards that were garnered for it.

Fast forward to a year ago when I joined Red Hat, and developed a completely different mindset. One of the first things I jumped into was the Buildah project. It facilitates building Open Container Initiative (OCI) images and it is especially good at allowing you to tailor the size of the image that is created. At that time Buildah was in its very early stages and there were some warts here and there that weren’t quite production ready.
