The Linux 3.14 kernel is going to be a very exciting kernel release with a great number of new features. Last week Linus Torvalds wasn't happy with the state of Linux 3.14, but things improved this week and the code is in much better shape. Linus is now anticipating that if all goes well this forthcoming week the final release could be here by this time next weekend.
Linus wrote in the release announcement, "What a difference a week makes. In a good way. A week ago, cutting rc6, I was not a happy person: the release had much too much noise in it, and I felt that an rc8 and even an rc9 might well be a real possibility...Now, things might change, and maybe next week ends up being another ugly week, but with some luck that won't happen and this is the last rc."
So we'll see how things go this week but so far it looks good that this might be the final week of testing for Linux 3.14 before our entire attention turns to the Linux 3.15 kernel, which we have already been writing about at length for some weeks.
