    Phoronix: Linux 5.15 Delivers Many Features With New NTFS Driver, In-Kernel SMB3 Server, New Hardware

    Feature development is over on the Linux 5.15 kernel with Linux 5.15-rc1 being issued. It's now on to testing and bug fixing over the next two months before the kernel is christened as stable. Here is our original Linux 5.15 feature overview about all of the big changes in this next kernel version.

    5.15 is the new 5.4.

      Michael, do you have any information regarding maintainance of the kernel in-tree ZSTD code?

      There was an attempt to unify the codebase with upstream (zstd-1.5.0) few month ago, since the in-tree implementation was kind off out-dated.

      It is not easy to find reliable information whether this is still WIP or "mission accomplished".

          SMB, NTFS. Sounds like the beginning of the great Windows 11 & Linux merge.

            Retweeting this. It was profound. Hopefully 5.15 will be an LTS.

              Are you implying about what I already heard lately 100,000 times, that Windows is switching to the Linux kernel? Please tell me no. Because the thought that Windows is gonna switch from NT kernel to the Linux kernel is total b*.

                For the last few years, the LTS kernel is the last of the year. It looks like it is indeed 5.15.
                We'll see if it stays that way.

                  Thank you, I always forget what the criteria was for LTS, and I remember hearing it before and I forgot. Gonna write this down. Thanks
