While Linux 4.1-rc4 was late, the fifth release candidate to the Linux 4.1 kernel is back out to being on Torvalds' usual Sunday release schedule.

As of writing this article, Linus hasn't yet issued any formal Linux 4.1-rc5 release announcement on the mailing list but it's been tagged in Git for some time now. In continuing to constantly monitor the Git activity, there were many fixes addressed over the past week. One notable regression that's been fixed this past week was taking care of the EXT4 RAID0 corruption issue.

The Linux 4.1 kernel is slowly but surely settling down and will see its official release in June. If you're not already familiar with the significant additions to Linux 4.1, read about the new Linux 4.1 features.
