Linus Torvalds released the Linux 3.19-rc6 weekly test kernel overnight.

Linus noted in his release announcement for 3.19-rc6 that its size has come in smaller than RC5, but he still prefers smaller kernel deltas this late in the development cycle. However, overall things are looking normal.

Torvalds anticipates needing to make a Linux 3.19-rc7 kernel next week and to follow that up with the final release, which puts the official Linux 3.19 kernel release approximately two weeks out.

Overall, Linux 3.19 is shaping up quite nicely and ships many new features. Torvalds' few remarks can be read via his usual LKML post.
