    Phoronix: Linux 5.11 Released With Intel Integer Scaling, AMD Performance Boost, RTX 30 KMS

    What better way for open-source enthusiasts to celebrate Valentine's Day than with the stable release of the Linux 5.11 kernel... Linus Torvalds even changed the kernel codename for the occasion to being the "Valentine's Day Edition" kernel...

      I don't know. Isn't 2021 too early to start using UTF?

        Could have used it for the octopus 🐙, saved some space (although, the emoji here seem to show six tendrils, like a squid 🦑- maybe the other two are behind it).

        Plus, no need to translate emoji!

          So, for the upcoming 5.12 release, Linus is likely going to change codename again. Let's hope he'll keep using meaningful (somewhat date-based) codenames like this one. And let's hope he'll keep his current good mood too...

            Tried 5.9 and 5.11 on a dav1d benchmark and saw about 23% performance improvement using a 5900x.

              VirtualBox as of this date still doesn’t work with kernel 5.10 and I’m assuming 5.11 is the same. Fucking pathetic. I’ll be on 5.4 if you guys need me

                that hasn't been true for almost a month: https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Changelog

                VirtualBox 6.1.18 (released January 19 2021)

                This is a maintenance release. The following items were fixed and/or added:

                ...
                • Linux host and guest: Support kernel version 5.10 (bug #20055)

                  hotaru that changelog is bogus. I’m using the latest 6.1.19 release and it doesn’t build on the latest 5.10 point release.
