Linux 4.0-rc2 Kernel Released After Delay Due To Intel DRM Driver
The Linux 4.0-rc2 kernel just brings various bug/regression fixes now being in the post-merge-window for the big Linux 4.0 release. Linux 4.0 brings many features and improvements, as usual for each major kernel version.
Linus noted in the 4.0-rc2 release announcement from a few minutes ago, "Other than that little one-liner i915 fix? Not much, actually. It's been a very quiet week, for being this early in the release process. Sure, 3.19-rc2 was even smaller, so it continues a trend, but that was the xmas week. I hope this low volume is just because the 4.0 merge window itself was somewhat calmer than most recent releases."
