LINUX KERNEL --
The fourth weekly release candidate to the Linux 4.0 kernel was just released for the newest round of Linux kernel testing.

Linus Torvalds announced the 4.0-rc4 kernel a few minutes ago and characterized this week's release candidate as a fairly normal release sans a slightly larger ARM SoC update pull than would be expected for this stage of the Linux kernel release cycle, but overall it's fairly on par with how things are turning out.

Those not familiar with the numerous Linux 4.0 changes (previously known as Linux 3.20) can see this Linux 4.0 feature overview for more details.
