While Linus Torvalds commonly releases Linux kernel updates late into Sunday evenings, this week he's done a Sunday morning release for kernel testers living in the US.

Torvalds' 4.3-rc3 release message was short and to the point: "So as usual, rc3 is actually bigger than rc2 (fixes are starting to trickle in), but nothing particularly alarming stands out. Everything looks normal: the bulk is drivers (all over, but gpu and networking are the biggest parts) and architecture updates. There's also networking and filesystem updates, along with documentation."

Linux 4.3 is shaping up to be another exciting Linux kernel update with a variety of new features. Complementing our various kernel tests done in articles is also the daily Ubuntu/Fedora Linux kernel Git testing done over on Have some other kernel test you'd like to see? Let me know!
