LINUX KERNEL --
The Linux 4.2 kernel has been released.

After the release was dragged out by one week, Linus Torvalds just tagged v4.2 in Git while keeping with the "Hurr durr I'ma sheep" codename that he's been doing for several release cycles now.

If you haven't already, be sure to read our lengthy list of the new features of Linux 4.2. Torvalds' usual brief release announcement can be read here.

Now to get excited for the Linux 4.3 merge window!
