As expected, Linus Torvalds announced Sunday night that the fourth Release Candidate (RC) version of the upcoming Linux kernel 3.14 is now available for download and testing.

Besides the fact that Linux kernel 3.14 RC4 is much smaller than the previous Release Candidate version, it comes with some interesting patches, updated drivers, bugfixes, and many other core improvements.

“Hey, things are looking pretty normal, and rc4 is smaller than rc3, so I'm happy. The biggest patch in here (accounting for about a sixth of the total) is just DaveJ re-indenting a reiserfs file.”

“Ignoring that whitespace cleanup, the rest is mostly the usual mix of drivers, networking and some architecture updates. Nothing big, and nothing that looks particularly scary. So get to it, and test it all out,” Linus Torvalds said in the official announcement.

You can download Linux kernel 3.14 RC4 right now from Softpedia. However, please keep in mind that this is a development release and it should not be installed on production machines.
