Kernel Log - Coming in 3.6 (Part 5): Infrastructure

Filed under
Linux

With the sixth release candidate of Linux 3.6, Linus Torvalds has asked the community to do some testing and said that he would like to release Linux 3.6 "soonish". Linux 3.6-rc6 could, therefore, already be the last pre-release version of the 3.6 kernel, and the new kernel may be released shortly; but more than once he has issued yet another rc after a statement like this, so release at the end of September is possible, too.

Nevertheless, the following article on the infrastructure changes in Linux 3.6 will therefore conclude the Kernel Log's "Coming in 3.6" mini-series. Parts 1 to 4 of this series discussed the new features in the areas of filesystems and storage, network drivers and infrastructure, architecture code and drivers.
