Written by Michael Larabel in Linux Kernel on 24 March 2019 at 07:27 PM EDT. 4 Comments
Linus Torvalds has announced the second weekly release candidate for Linux 5.1.

Linux 5.1-rc2 is looking "fairly normal" but then again with being the trailing week after a busy merge window, it's difficult to tell how the rest of the cycle will pan out.

Linus noted in the 5.1-rc2 announcement that nothing particular stands out but there are fixes to the io_uring code and other improvements merged over the past week.
