Jon Masters describes some of the features coming in Linux 3.10, and summarises the past month of activity in the Linux kernel community
Jon Masters summarises the goings-on in the Linux kernel community as the 3.9 kernel was being prepared for release. Ongoing development brings with it security headaches, and kernel testing is improved by the Trinity Fuzzer
The merge window for the Linux 3.12 kernel is coming to an end and 3.12-rc1 should be released soon. Here's an overview of the interesting merges that happened over the past two weeks as new features for Linux 3.12.
This morning, I came across two Phoronix articles (here and here) generating some sort of hype with regards to a ZFS port for the Linux kernel, with article headlines as Native ZFS Is Coming To Linux Next Month. My response to this, as I will explain below is: Why?
While the Linux 3.12 kernel isn't even up to its first RC release and thus the merge window hasn't closed yet, Linux 3.12 has already collected a number of promising features for the open-source kernel...
While we have conducted studies related to the Linux kernel performance in the past such as benchmarking up to twelve kernel releases, going out the door this morning are the results from the largest-ever Linux kernel comparison conducted at Phoronix, and very likely the largest ever of its kind regardless of source.
This month on Phoronix there was a heck of a lot of Linux and open-source content: there were over 32 featured-length articles (more than one per day) and 262 news stories (more than eight stories per day) written by your's truly. The Linux 3.12 kernel and Ubuntu / Mir activity were the most popular happenings of October.
