Thanks for the confirmation. We are moving all of our CI Unix VM's to use Docker which is a bit of work but well worth it. Ansel has just started the initial configuration but it does look like RHEL version 8 is the best choice.

What is holding things up is the release of CentOS 8 which is what we will actually put on our supported list.

Centos 8 was finally released and it will be added to our CI by the end of this year.

Unfortunately it appears the compiler shipped with RHEL/CentOS 7 is GCC 4.8.5, which is far too old to have the level of C++14 support that CopperSpice requires.
That used to be the case but not any more. For some time gcc7 has been available and gcc8 support is now being added.

Centos 8 binaries were added to our CI and support platforms with the CS 1.6.2 release. As per our supported list in the Overview docs, we are indeed using gcc 8.2.1.
