On August 1st, 2017 Red Hat announced the next regular update to their flag ship operating system.

The kernel level for 7.4 is kernel-3.10.0-693.el7.

From a Linux on Z Systems perspective the major enhancements are the support for the zEDC (genwqe tools) card, the new RoCE 2 card of the z14 (mlx 5 driver) and the usual set of cryptographic enhancements in libica, ibmca and opencryptoki.
