    Phoronix: The Exciting Features Of Linux 4.14: Zstd, Vega Hugepages, AMD SME, New Drivers

    With Linux 4.14-rc1 having been released one day early, here is our look at the new features of Linux 4.14 with the merge window having been closed. There's a lot to get excited about with Linux 4.14 from graphics driver improvements, new hardware improvements, a new Realtek WiFi driver, a PWM vibrator driver, and Btrfs Zstd compression support..

        It tickles me that we have Vega hugepages support, but not support for *actually displaying a picture*.

          Is it really necessary for every Linux features to explicitly say that the display code is not getting in? I don't know about others but it's getting old to me...

              I really shouldn't browse forums when I have insomnia. I thought "Whoa, we've hit the next level, sex toy support in the Kernel!"
