The Linux 3.6-rc5 kernel was released on Friday evening, but this latest weekly development snapshot is too calm says Linus Torvalds.
Linus is back onto releasing the Linux 3.6 kernel
on the usual seven day cadence, but this time around there isn't anything too shocking about -rc5. "So 3.6-rc5 is out there, and everything is looking fairly calm. Too calm, in fact, I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop, when Greg finally crawls his way out from under his mailbox after the kernel summit and kayaking. I suspect a few other developers may also have been quiet because of the kernel summit and related travel."
The Linux 3.6-rc5 kernel is just made up of the usual assortment of regression fixes across the different sub-systems although the Linux kernel drivers account for most of the activity.
