Linus Torvalds Releases Linux Kernel 3.17 RC2 to Celebrate the 23rd Anniversary of Linux

Linux

“So I deviated from my normal Sunday schedule partly because there wasn't much there (I blame the KS and LinuxCon), but partly due to sentimental reasons: Aug 25 is the anniversary of the original Linux announcement (‘Hello everybody out there using minix’), so it's just a good day for release announcements.”

“Anyway, for being an rc2 it's pretty small, and I can always hope that things stay that way. It's about 60% drivers (drm, networking, hid, sound, PCI), with 15% filesystem updates (cifs, isofs, nfs), 10% architectures (mips, arm, some minor x86 stuff) and the rest is ‘misc’ (kernel, networking, documentation),” wrote Linus in the email announcement.
