Linus Torvalds announced the immediate availability for download of the third released candidate for the Linux 3.7 kernel series. According to Linus Torvalds, this new release candidate for the Linux kernel 3.7.x branch holds nothing extraordinary, with just a few memory leak fixes in USB serial drivers and some other stuff.
The sixth Release Candidate for the new Linux kernel 3.16 has been announced by Linus Torvalds and it's now ready for testing. Linux Kernel 3.16 RC6 was supposed to be a calm release, with few changes and improvements, but it looks like the developers have gone the other way.
Yesterday, Linus Torvalds announced the release of the final stable version Linux 3.0. With the release of Linux 3.0, Torvalds has finally brought Linux out of the 2.6.x series, which had been in development for more than seven years.Linux 3.0 was actually planned for release in the second week of July, but a bug with the RCU meant that he had to release another RC instead.
