Current Release Progress
Rocky Linux 9.0 will be ready for general release in the June - July 2022 timeframe after thorough testing and validation.
In tandem with Rocky Linux 9, we are releasing Peridot, the new build system with which it is forged. We are excited to open source Peridot, which has been in development for over a year! This release represents our commitment to free and open source software as well as the longevity of the project which necessitates that Rocky Linux is built in the open, with replicable and verifiable tooling.
