LINUX KERNEL --
Linus Torvalds announced the release of the Linux 4.7-rc4 kernel on Sunday night.

Linus explained in the announcement, "It's been a fairly normal week, and rc4 is out. Go test. The statistics look very normal: about two thirds drivers, with the rest being half architecture updates and half 'misc' (small filesystem updates,. some documentation, and a smattering of patches elsewhere). The bulk of the driver updates are usb and gpu, but there's iio, leds, platform drivers, dma etc)."

Linux 4.7 is shaping up quite nicely and should be released in four weeks or so. If you're not familiar with the new features of 4.7, see our kernel feature overview.
