The Linux 3.4 kernel
was released to end out the weekend of Linus Torvalds' with this major kernel release highlighting several new Linux features.
Key features of Linux 3.4 include:
- Intel performance improvements
(Sandy Bridge / Ivy Bridge).
- New power management phases
and a PCI-E ASPM change
- The initial Radeon HD 7000 series / Trinity code
for the kernel DRM driver. (The user-space Gallium3D support though is still a mess.)
- Many Btrfs changes
- DMA-BUF PRIME support
- x32 ABI support
- Initial GeForce 600 Kepler series support
The release came right on time as expected last week
