Another Sunday, another Linux kernel update. Linus Torvalds just tagged the Linux 4.1-rc7 kernel release.

With seven weeks having passed since the Linux 4.1 kernel merge window, things are settling down in kernel-space for the official Linux 4.1 release that should happen in the next week or two. Over the past week were just more bug-fixes landing that amounted to the usual churn for development at this stage.

As of writing this article, Linus Torvalds hasn't posted any release announcement to the kernel mailing list, but Linux 4.1-rc7 can be fetched from Git. If you're not familiar with the changes coming for Linux 4.1, read about its many new features. Over on continue to be daily Linux kernel benchmarks of the latest Git code while on Phoronix in the days ahead will continue to be more of our usual Linux kernel special testing articles, etc.
