Linus Torvalds has released the Linux 3.10-rc6 kernel on Saturday afternoon. While there's still some time ahead before the official Linux 3.10 kernel
release, the rate of change appears to be slowing.
After worrying last week about all of the changes
still being pushed for Linux 3.10, Torvalds threatened to be more strict about the changes he would permit. A week has passed and the rate of pull requests to take care of only regressions has decreased.
Linus Torvalds wrote in the 3.10-rc6 announcement
, "...is not to say that rc6 couldn't have been smaller, and I'll probably be even more upset next week if you try to push stuff that really shouldn't go in by now, but things are better than in rc5."
