Linus Torvalds officially released the Linux 3.3 kernel on Sunday afternoon.

The Linux 3.3 kernel release announcement can be found on LKML.org. This release is coming one week late due to the surprise -rc7 release.

As far as the top features are concerned for Linux 3.3, read the aptly-named Top Features Of The Linux 3.3 Kernel. There's also a long list of changes for this new kernel release on KernelNewbies.org.

With 3.3 out the door, the merge window for the Linux 3.4 kernel is now open. There's already a lot building up for Linux 3.4 with many open-source graphics changes, more Android merging, Btrfs LZ4 support, and lots of other work that will be talked about on Phoronix in the next few weeks.
