Linus Torvalds has announced the third weekly test candidate for the upcoming Linux 4.12 kernel debut.

Linus commented of Linux 4.12-rc3 that it isn't a very big release over the prior RCs and so far it's a "nice calm release cycle." The biggest change this past week was actually documentation updates.

Those wanting to read Torvalds' few words about 4.12-rc3 can see his release announcement. If you aren't up to speed on the big new features of this kernel to debut as stable in a few weeks, see our Linux 4.12 feature overview.
