BastionLinux 25 Core Released

We don't normally attempt to front-run Red Hat (and CentOS), but in anticipation of RHEL 8, we've released BastionLinux Core 25.

The main impetus behind this is major changes to GCC versions, C++11, and other elements of that tool chain which are making it increasingly difficult to build and support the latest software stacks on BastionLinux 19 - which was released three years ago.

Outside of later releases for tools, the most significant change for users is moving from yum to dnf.  But this too is almost 100% backward compatible with the old command line.

BastionLinux 25 is available here and we shall soon be publishing cloud images of our various products.
