As it’s Sunday here in the US, Linus Torvalds just published his regular, weekly announcement to announce a new RC (Release Candidate) milestone of the forthcoming Linux 4.13 kernel series.
Last week’s RC5 release was smaller than the previous fourth Release Candidate, and Linus Torvalds was confident that things would progress normally for this development cycle. And he was right, as RC6 seems to be a normal patch, not to mention that things were quite calm during the past week. It brings only a few updated networking, sound, and InfiniBand drivers, along with some architecture improvements.
