Linux 4.2-rc5 Is Now Available
The fifth weekly test version of the Linux 4.2 kernel is now available.
Linus Torvalds tagged 4.2-rc5 a short time ago in Git. It's been another week with more bug-fixing taking place while the official Linux 4.2 release should be out before the end of August. As of writing this post, Torvalds has yet to issue his usual brief release announcement but once he does send that out there, if he notes anything interesting there will be an update or new post about anything new there.
If you're not familiar with the changes of Linux 4.2, read about its numerous new features.
As usual, we continue to benchmark the latest daily Git kernel on a fully-automated basis via Phoromatic and the Phoronix Test Suite. Those daily Linux kernel tests are available via LinuxBenchmarking.com.
