Today Should Be Linux 4.2 Kernel Day

For those needing a reason to celebrate today, the exciting Linux 4.2 kernel should be released before the day is through!

After being delayed from release last week with Linus Torvalds instead opting for 4.2-rc8, he should almost surely be releasing Linux 4.2 final today -- and there's no reason not to given that it appears to have been a rather quiet week and no scary regressions creeping up.

If you're not familiar with why Linux 4.2 is great, there's the top features of the new kernel and the more lengthy article covering the many new features of Linux 4.2.

There's already been several Linux 4.2 articles on Phoronix while more are still on the way before switching focus to Linux 4.3. Over on continue to be daily, automated Git benchmarks of the newest kernel code each morning.

Stay tuned for the Linux 4.2 release announcement later today. At least as of right now, the codename for Linux 4.2 remains "Hurr durr I'ma sheep", which it's been now for a few kernel releases.
