That’s right! The AlmaLinux OS Foundation is proud to announce the release of AlmaLinux OS 8.4 Stable. Available now on a mirror near you! Download a fresh copy and then join us to talk about it.


Production Release

Thanks to the community for the thousands of downloads of AlmaLinux OS 8.3, all your valuable feedback, bug reports and most of all your contributions. We’re proud to announce the availability of AlmaLinux OS 8.4 just one short week following the release of RHEL 8.4*. This is a production ready, stable release and ready to power all your computing needs and workloads.

Release Notes and More Information

You can read more about it by checking out the Release Notes. The biggest change you’ll notice is that the #1 most requested feature, Secure Boot, is now fully supported in this release. Other changes include OpenSCAP support, the release of a devel repo and some new module streams and some compiler updates. You can also find a link to the upstream release notes there, which will provide you with a complete list of changes and updates to this release. Please stay tuned for the ARM beta release coming REALLY SOON.
