Come Sunday and Linus Torvalds is ready to release the next release candidate for Linux kernel this week it was the Linux 3.12-rc5.
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.
Linus Torvalds has announced that the second Release Candidate in the new Linux kernel 3.15 branch has been released and is now available for testing. It seems that the Linux maintainers don't get any rest, not even during Easter celebrations, and the second Release Candidate has been launched just like this was another, regular week.
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.
A new Release Candidate for the new Linux kernel 3.16 has been made available by Linus Torvalds and it seems that things got back to normal, at least in terms of size. Linux kernel 3.16 has had a very rough ride so far and a couple of the releases in the series have been rather large until now.
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.
Linus Torvalds has announced that the first Release Candidate in the new Linux kernel 3.16 branch has arrived, marking the beginning of a new development cycle. The Linux kernel development never stops, and only a week after the release of the final version in the 3.15 branch a new one is now available. As you can imagine, this is not something for regular users.
Linus Torvalds has let release candidate five for version 3.13 of the Linux kernel into the wild for some festive footling. The Linux Lord let the new release candidate loose in this post that declares Nothing really exciting stands out which is just how I want it.
