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.

Mainline Release (Linus's tree) News

Since my last report, 3.10 has been released and 3.11 is now at 3.11-rc3. The ACPI backlight changes that went into 3.11-rc2 caused regressions and have been reverted in this rc. I will go into the details on the nature of backlight changes later in this article. The crc t10 dif crypto support has been reverted, since this change has initrd infrastructure problems.

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