Linux 3.19 Kernel Released
The Linux 3.19 kernel was tagged in Git close to an hour ago now. Surprisingly, as of writing this news post, Linus Torvalds has yet to issue any Linux 3.19 release announcement but things went according to plan as per last week with the plans for 3.19 final.
Linux 3.19.0 is codenamed "Diseased Newt", which is the same codename since Linux 3.18-rc3.
If you're not already familiar with the many exciting changes/features for Linux 3.19 given the coverage by dozens of Phoronix articles on Linux 3.19, see earlier today's The Best Changes & Features Of The Linux 3.19 Kernel.
Now to get excited for the Linux 3.20 kernel, which originally Linus spoke of being Linux 4.0.
