Linus Torvalds released the Linux 3.12-rc6 kernel a day early due to flying out tonight for the Linux Kernel Summit happening next week in Edinburgh. Overall, things are quieting down for the Linux 3.12 kernel with the end being near.

Linus Torvalds did a very brief 3.12-rc6 announcement and said that nothing major happened last week and next week is also likely to be quiet due to the kernel developers meeting up in Edinburgh. The announcement can be read from the Indiana LKML archives.

While the past few weeks have been quiet, overall, there's a lot of exciting features to be excited for with Linux 3.12 -- especially faster open-source graphics driver performance.
