Linux Kernel News - July 2013

Filed under
Linux

The Linux kernel community is busy integrating and testing 3.11 content, working on 3.12 development, and finalizing the topic agenda for the upcoming Linux Conference Europe and Kernel Summit that are scheduled to be held in Edinburgh, UK from October 21-23 2013. Let's start with the release news.

For more information on this rc, please refer to Linus's 3.11-rc3 release notes: https://lkml.org/lkml/2013/7/29/16

And now to the two applications …
