Today's topics include the news that Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.8 is entering the beta test cycle, Microsoft sends SharePoint 2016 to manufacturing, a new tool to help Evernote users to switch to Microsoft OneNote, and Sony's nationwide expansion of its PlayStation Vue Internet TV services.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.8 officially enters its beta stage today, providing users of Red Hat's Linux platform with new features, some of which had already debuted in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.2 in November 2015.

While the RHEL 7 product branch first became generally available in June 2014, Red Hat's Linux products have long life cycles. RHEL 6, first released in November 2010, is still in what Red Hat refers to as Product Phase 1, which means this version's capabilities are still being updated and extended.

SharePoint 2016 is one important step closer to its official launch. The latest version of the Redmond, Wash., software maker's cloud friendly team collaboration platform, including Project Server 2016, has been released to manufacturing (RTM), bringing it one step closer to general availability, Microsoft confirmed March 14.

A part of the software release lifecycle, RTM status generally describes software that has left the testing stage, been finalized and is nearly ready to be released publicly.

Microsoft has released a new tool that makes it easier for users of the popular Evernote note-taking app to switch to OneNote. Once a part of the paid Office productivity software suite, Microsoft spun out OneNote as a free mobile app for iPhone in early 2011.

Although OneNote remains part of the Office product portfolio, today it is available as a stand-alone app for Apple iOS, Android, Mac and Windows. OneNote is also available as a browser-based Web application.

Sony is now offering its PlayStation Vue Internet-based streaming television services in 203 markets across the United States. This a major expansion of its market availability after offering the services in seven U.S. cities since March 2015.

The services are cloud-based, enable simultaneous streaming for up to seven devices and users, and require no contracts or equipment rental fees.
