Red Hat has released development tools to the open source community, which are designed to make it easier for enterprises and developers to quickly test and integrate new applications with Red Hat Linux and other Linux distributions.
The company has also announced a new web-based community for open source developers seeking development partners, and an open source entertainment website for end-users.
The development tools released to the open source community include Dogtail, which is software for testing graphical applications running on Linux.
In addition, Red Hat is releasing internal scripts it has developed for testing applications.
It has also released an automated test suite that tests graphical and non-graphical applications under the widely used open source General Public License (GPL).
The new web community for enterprises and developers is called 108. The beta site is similar to Microsoft’s MSDN (Microsoft Developers Network) website.
