Linus Torvalds announced yesterday, April 29th, that the fifth Release Candidate of the upcoming Linux 3.4 kernel is available for download and testing.
Linux kernel 3.4 RC5 includes 50% driver updates, 20% arch. fixes, 15% filesystem improvements (Btrfs and NFS), 5% networking updates, as well as random bugfixes.
"And like -rc4, quite a bit of the changes came in on Friday (with some more coming in yesterday). And we haven't been calming down, quite the reverse. -rc5 has almost 50% more commits than -rc4 had. Not good.
"That said, I don't think there is anything hugely scary there.
" - said Linus Torvalds in the email announcement
