Linus Torvalds announced yesterday, September 16th, that the sixth Release Candidate of the upcoming Linux 3.6 kernel is available for download and testing.
Linux kernel 3.6 Release Candidate 6 is comprised of two thirds drivers, and the rest is just filesystem (including NFS and GFS2) and architecture updates.
"And as I suspected, the reason -rc5 was so small was that a lot of people were still getting ready after the Kernel Summit. So -rc6 is a bit larger, since people were playing catch-up. That said, it's not *huge* either, and it's not like it looks scary, but it's definitely not tiny.
“Please do test things out, I'd really like to be able to do the final 3.6 soonish..
” said Linus Torvalds in the email announcement
