Con Kolivas has announced the release of the MuQSS CPU scheduler v0.15 with support for the Linux 4.9 kernel. MuQSS is his evolutionary successor to the BFS scheduler.

MuQSS v0.15 is an upgraded, stable version of the Multiple Queue Skiplist scheduler. This nearly 10,000 lines of code CPU scheduler continues to be maintained out-of-tree with Con Kolivas being uninterested in trying to mainline the work.

Details on MuQSS v0.15 via the kernel mailing list.
