The first release candidate of the Linux 3.2 kernel is now available. There's quite a number of branches and other changes that were merged during the Linux 3.2 window, but Linus says that it shouldn't be "hugely scary." Linus additionally says, "The fact that 3.1 dragged out did mean that this ended up being one of the bigger merge windows, but I'm not feeling *too* nervous about it."

There's long been a desire to have a KMS-based console program that can tie in with OpenGL, but none of the active DRM developers have yet to get around to writing such a "kmscon" program. However, Jesse Barnes has written a fairly in-depth guide for anyone wishing to write a standalone program using EGL and KMS with OpenGL. As Jesse says, "just in case anyone wants to port the VTE widget and give me my VTs on a cube."

The PCI subsystem pull for the Linux 3.2 kernel was published on Friday evening. If you were hoping it would rework PCI-E ASPM (Active-State Power Management) to be more like the Windows implementation or for more PCI drivers to be setting the bits directly to support it (effectively white-listing drivers/hardware), it didn't happen yet.
