Kernel Log: Coming in 3.10 (Part 1)

Filed under
Linux

Last weekend, Linus Torvalds released the fourth pre-release version of Linux 3.10. Technical problems meant that it was initially only available via the git source code management system, though Torvalds notes in the email announcing the release that he considers git to be the easiest way of getting hold of it anyway. Linux 3.10-rc4 is now also available as a source code archive via kernel.org.

As usual, Torvalds and his fellow developers merged all of the major changes for the 3.10 kernel in the two weeks following the release of version 3.9. Linux 3.10 thus now finds itself in the stabilisation phase, where large-scale changes are undertaken only in exceptional cases. Therefore, we are now able to offer a fuller overview of the most important changes to be anticipated in the 3.10 kernel, which is due for release in late June/early July. We will be presenting a series of articles looking at various areas of the kernel.

The series opens with a description of new features relating to network support. Over the next few weeks, further articles will deal with storage technology, filesystems, graphics drivers, kernel infrastructure, processor/platform support and drivers for other hardware.
