End of support for CentOS

End of support for CentOS

CentOS will no longer be a supported development platform as of the release of InterSystems IRIS 2023.3. 

CentOS had been a supported development platform to give developers a free-to-use equivalent to Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) for IRIS development.  As you're probably aware, Red Hat made significant changes to CentOS which moved it to being “upstream” of RHEL. This means it has bugs & features not yet included in RHEL, which can cause problems for developers building on the platform.

Developers using CentOS are encouraged to take advantage of Red Hat’s free developer program to get free development licenses for RHEL.

IRIS 2023.2 (and earlier) continues to be supported on CentOS.
