Linux 4.4 Press Coverage

  • Rejoice, Penguinistas, Linux 4.4 is upon us

    Version 4.4 of the Linux kernel has been finalised and released into the wild.

    Emperor Penguin Linus Torvalds announced the release on Sunday evening, US time.

    What's new this time around? Support for GPUs seem the headline item, with plenty of new drivers and hooks for AMD kit. Perhaps most notable is the adoption of the Virgil 3D project which makes it possible to parcel up virtual GPUs. With virtual Linux desktops now on offer from Citrix and VMware, those who want to deliver virtual desktops with workstation-esque graphics capabilities have their on-ramp to Penguin heaven.

    Raspberry Pi owners also have better graphics to look forward to, thanks to a new Pi KMS driver that will be updated with acceleration code in future releases.
