"In May Red Hat, Inc. announced the availability of an early release of the Red Hat source code for the forthcoming Intel Itanium processor platform targeting high-end servers and workstations. This distribution enables the development of IA-64 software for the most intensive computing environments, from high performance design automation to enterprise level databases. A free download version of the code can be obtained from Red Hat's web site: ftp://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/ia64."
"Red Hat's release of pre-production tools and software represents an important milestone in the development of the IA-64 Linux platform," said Michael Pope, Intel's Director of e-Business Solutions Marketing. "This release will enable the open source Linux community to accelerate their development of advanced server and workstation applications for Itanium processor based systems."
"This pre-production version will include the Red Hat/Cygnus compiler and tool kit. It is based on the tools and kernel developed by the IA-64 Linux Project, formerly known as the Trillian project, a group of companies that include Red Hat, Intel, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Caldera, CERN, SuSE, SGI, TurboLinux and VA Linux. The full release of Red Hat's offering will coincide with the IA-64 hardware availability from Intel."
