Well, Linus Torvalds decided against releasing the Linux 4.2 kernel today.
If all goes well, the Linux 4.2 kernel will be officially released before the day is through. If you haven't been keeping up with the flow of Phoronix articles over recent weeks, here's a look at some of the highlights for Linux 4.2.
Yesterday I posted the first independent benchmarks of the Bcachefs file-system, the new file-system aiming for EXT4/XFS speed while having Btrfs/ZFS-like features. Here are some more benchmarks.
With Linux 4.2 hopefully being released this weekend, here's a look at some of the features that are currently out on the horizon for likely merging into the Linux 4.3 kernel.

Besides Rob Clark being busy implementing GLES/GL 3 in Freedreno Gallium3D, over in kernel-space he has a slew of new improvements to land in its MSM DRM driver for Linux 4.3.
The Linux 4.2-rc7 kernel is now available, but it's undecided yet if Linux 4.2 will be officially released next week.

Two months after the Raspberry Pi default firmware upgraded to Linux 4.0, they've now upgraded to Linux 4.1 as the latest stable kernel.
Back in 2013 Facebook began poaching top Btrfs developers and last year we reported on Facebook trying out Btrfs on some servers. Now it seems they're getting ready to utilize more of this next-generation Linux file-system in a production capacity.
The fifth weekly test version of the Linux 4.2 kernel is now available.
Linus Torvalds announced the release today of the Linux 4.2-rc4 kernel, the fourth weekly snapshot of the in-development Linux 4.2.

In the Phoronix server room for our Linux hardware testing and the LinuxBenchmarking.com daily performance tracker there are 16 of the 56 systems running Btrfs as their root file-system. While those systems have been chugging along for months and many of them running the latest daily Git kernel, I've finally had one of the systems run into some apparent Btrfs file-system issues.
Jerome Glisse continues hacking on the very lengthy feature work item of adding Heterogeneous Memory Management (HMM) to the Linux kernel.
