Linus Torvalds has released Linux 3.14-rc3, the latest development release of the "Shuffling Zombie Juror", and with this release "the scary stuff" should be resolved.

Linus released the Linux 3.14-rc3 kernel on Sunday afternoon and it's fixed up a lot of code in the past week with the rate of changes for 3.14-rc3 being much greater than last week with 3.14-rc2. There's a lot of changes to the kernel networking code and many different drivers along with architecture updates. Additional details can be found via the release announcement, Linus followed up by saying, "You really should compile and test it, though. By -rc3, the scary stuff should have all been fixed. Not that there really was that much scary stuff this time around, I think."

The Linux 3.14 kernel is shaping up to be a really great release. Check out our overview of the Linux 3.14 kernel features for more details on the many great changes found in this next kernel revision. With the bulk of the kernel activity settling down for 3.14, I'll now be proceeding in the days ahead with the usual Linux kernel benchmarks done on Phoronix for each release cycle. Have any new Linux kernel benchmark requests? Let us know via +Phoronix on Google+, Phoronix on Facebook, and @Phoronix on Twitter.
