Linux Kernel 3.7 RC4
Note di rilascio:

It´s been a pretty calm week, so here´s a nice small -rc for you guys.

Rafael worried me for a while with what looked like a hard-to-debug regression report, but it turned out to be user-space breakage instead, so things are looking pretty stable. Things also look entirely normal: most of the changes here are various device driver issues, with a small smattering of other stuff (nfs client update, some minor arch updates, and some networking stuff).

The driver fixes are pretty much all over - sound, gpu, HID and input, i2c, networking ..

Perhaps notable just because of the noise it caused in certain circles, there´s the ext4 bitmap journaling fix for the issue that caused such a ruckus. It´s a tiny patch and despite all the noise about it you couldn´t actually trigger the problem unless you were doing crazy things with special mount options.

Other things? Nothing really stands out. The appended shortlog gives a reasonable view into the kinds of details people have been working on. I´ll be traveling the upcoming week, but I expect to have reasonable access to wifi, and if it stays this quiet and calm, nobody will even notice.

Go forth and test,
