    Phoronix: Linux 5.6 Is Going To Be A Prominent Kernel With Features From USB4 To WireGuard

    While there still is several weeks to go until the Linux 5.5 kernel reaches stable and that marking the start of the Linux 5.6 merge window, already from the work we've been tracking in the various "next" branches, this first full kernel cycle of 2020 is going to be a big one...

      5.9 will be. Or 5.10, if they speed up a bit. Anyway, the last kernel of this year ought to become LTS.

              I agree. The promises of this kernel upgrade makes me think it would be worth delaying 20.04LTS to 20.06LTS if necessary. It's been done before.

                  Have you seen otherwise? Linux 5.6 would be way too close to 20.04 LTS release date.
