The Linux 3.10 kernel
, which yields the biggest changes in years
, has been officially released this Sunday evening.
Linus Torvalds contemplated doing another release candidate, but ultimately went ahead and tagged the official Linux 3.10 commit as was anticipated
There's a heck of a lot to this new kernel release as covered already in the many Phoronix articles in past weeks and in the best features of the Linux 3.10 kernel
. For other areas/subsystems not generally covered on Phoronix, additional information on Linux 3.10 can be found at KernelNewbies.org
The official Linux 3.10 kernel release announcement can be read on the LKML
. Linus notes, "In the bigger picture (ie since 3.9) this release has been pretty typical and not particularly prone to problems, despite my waffling about the exact release date. As usual, the bulk patch-wise is all drivers (pretty much exactly two thirds), while the rest is evenly split between arch updates and "misc". No major new subsystems this time around, although there are individual new features."
Now it's time to get ready for the Linux 3.11 kernel
