RHEL logo
On April 10th, 2018 Red Hat announced the next regular update to their flag ship operating system.

The kernel level for 7.5 is kernel-3.10.0-862.el7. The kernel level for 7.5-alt is kernel-4.14.0-49.el7a.
And this is actually the largest change. There is an alternate DVD with very interesting stuff. As Red hat wrote in their announcement: "This release also brings support for single-host KVM virtualization and Open Container Initiative (OCI)-formated runtime environment and base image to IBM z Systems."

On top the classic kernel got a lot of bug fixes and security & crypto enhancements
