New Features On The Horizon For The Linux Kernel

Besides the many Linux graphics driver changes for Linux 3.19, there's many other non-graphics features out on the horizon in kernel land -- some of which might land in Linux 3.19 but most of the other items are post-3.19 material. Linux 4.0 also isn't likely far out.

Nasty Lockup Issue Still Being Investigated For Linux 3.18

When Linux 3.18-rc6 was released last Sunday, Linus Torvalds noted in the release announcement that a "a big unknown worry in a regression" remained. Nearly one week later, kernel developers are still figuring out what's going on with this regression that can cause frequent lockups. Worse off, it looks like it might affect the Linux 3.17 kernel too.
