    Phoronix: The Many New Features & Improvements Of The Linux 5.0 Kernel

    Linus Torvalds just released Linux 5.0-rc1, what was formerly known as Linux 4.21 over the past two weeks. While the bumping was rather arbitrary as opposed to a major change necessitating the big version bump, this next version of the Linux kernel does come with some exciting changes and new features (of course, our Twitter followers already have known Linux was thinking of the 5.0 re-brand from 4.21). Here is our original feature overview of the new material to find in this kernel.

    Don't care much for the kernel naming scheme nowdays.
    5.0 or 4.21 seems utterly arbitrary.

      That's exactly the point... the kernel never claimed to use semantic versioning.

        Considering how vocal Linus gets when people break the userland compatibility it might not matter that much though.

          Other networking changes too but sadly WireGuard wasn't added.
          And 2019 was going so well
