RFA C++ 8.2: Which of the Linux release lib files should be used with RHEL 7.9?

The RFA 8.2 C++ release for Linux contains 2 library versions that are compatible with 64-bit archs.: 1. OL7_64_GCC482 2. RHEL6_64_GCC444. The RFA C++ 8.2 release notes mentions that these have been tested with:

1. RHEL6_64_GCC444 : Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.10 with RFA Lib GCC 7.4.0

2. OL7_64_GCC482: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 7.7 with RFA Lib GCC 4.8.2

For an application that is going to be run on RHEL 7.9, should I prefer to use the RFA libraries OL7_64_GCC482 because they are proven to have been used with a close RHEL version (7.7) or should I go with RHEL6_64_GCC444 because that's been built on RHEL (even though it is only tested against RHEL 6.10)? Thanks

According to the API Compatibility Matrix and the README file, you should use OL7_64_GCC482 on RHEL7.x.
