Anyway, with 3.15 released, my "master" branch has already merged the
work in my "next" branch on my local machine, and I'll be
decommissioning the "next" branch once I push that all out. After
that, any future merge window work will happen on "master", and we'll
be back to the normal single-branch model for my tree.

The latest Linux 3.16 kernel pull request worth covering on Phoronix are the latest LLVMLinux patches for being able to compile the kernel with Clang rather than GCC.
With Linux 3.15 came the patch-set to come close to being able to compile under Clang and now with Linux 3.16 it's a bit closer. A set of five LLVMLinux patches are called for merging that affect ARM and Shash Crypto code.
The Samsung Z looks and feels very much like Samsung's Android smartphones. There's the tiles section at the top of the home screen, with some app icons at the botton, and there's the pull-down notifications and settings tray at the very top. You also get the hardware Back and Menu buttons, in addition to the main Home button. The Settings app looks almost identical to Samsung's Android version.
A Conversation With Linus Torvalds, Who Built The World's Most Robust Operating System And Gave It Away For FreeSubmitted by Roy Schestowitz on Saturday 7th of June 2014 10:01:50 PM Filed under
In 1991, 22-year old Finnish computer programmer Linus Torvalds released his own operating system. Opening with the message “Hello everybody out there,” (a now-iconic phrase among Linux fans), he posted the source code online. People alternately contributed their abilities to improve it where they could or went off to build their own things with it.
Robolinux 7.5.3 is a fast and easy to use Linux distribution based on Debian, and its developer thinks that it can be the solution for people who look to protect their privacy.
If you remember from previous releases of Robolinux, the developer of this particular distribution came up with a working idea on how to move people from the Windows platform to Linux without them having to give up their favorite applications.
ZBOSS Linux 6.5 was released on Friday as a RHEL-based "enterprise" Linux distribution that ships with the ZFS file-system by default.
ZBOSS by ZETTALANE Systems isn't to be confused with the other ZBOSS, the ZigBee Open Source Stack. ZBOSS isn't also to be confused with Red Hat's JBoss. I was just contacted by ZETTALANE on Friday about the 6.5 release as their apparent Red Hat Enterprise Linux based distribution that ships with ZFS for "unified Software Defined Storage with iSCSI, FC and NAS connectivity. For enterprise-class features it packs unlimited snapshots, data replication and High Availability in active-active mode." ZBOSS is short for the ZettaByte OpenStorage Server.
The SparkyLinux 3.34 "Annagerman" system is built on Debian GNU/Linux "Jessie" and is not all that different from the previous versions in the series, at least not in this particular aspect.
The developers of SparkyLinux also provide a number of other flavors for this particular distribution, but the current update covers LXDE, Razor-Qt, and Enlightenment 18. These are desktop environments mostly known for the fact that they are very lightweight.
The amount of changes and enhancements for this branch of the Linux kernel is rather large and the developers have added numerous drivers and other improvements. This is an LTS release and it's likely that it will be updated for a long time.
“I'm announcing the release of the 3.10.41 kernel. All users of the 3.10 kernel series must upgrade.”
“The updated 3.10.y git tree can be found at: git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-stable.git linux-3.10.y and can be browsed at the normal kernel.org git web browser: http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-stable.git;a=summary,” Greg Kroah-Hartman said in the email announcement.
