BFS Scheduler 0.446 Supports The Linux 3.13 Kernel
Written by Michael Larabel in Linux Kernel on 6 March 2014 at 12:34 AM EST. 4 Comments
For users of the BFS scheduler patches to the kernel, they have been updated this week for the Linux 3.13 kernel.

Con Kolivas continues maintaining his Brain Fuck Scheduler patch-set outside of the Linux kernel with no ambitions to mainline the alternative CPU scheduler. BFS 0.446 was released this week and with this release comes support for the now-stable Linux 3.13 kernel.

This new BFS version is mostly about build fixes and synchronization with the latest stable kernel release while not any other prominent changes have done to the scheduler. In a few weeks time will then likely be a new BFS version for the quickly stabilizing Linux 3.14 kernel.

Details on the new BFS release can be found via Con's blog.
