Linux 3.15-rc3

Linux

From: Linus Torvalds
To: Linux Kernel Mailing List
Subject: Linux 3.15-rc3
Date: Sun, 27 Apr 2014 20:43:06 -0700

Another week, another rc. So far, no big scares, and rc3 is
appropriately smaller than rc2 was, so we're following the right
trajectory here.

The statistics look fairly normal too, with half drivers (input, usb,
gpu, acpi, regulator..) and a third arch updates (much of it again arm
dts files, but other arm and some um updates too). The rest is misc,
but mainly concentrated in filesystem updates (btrfs and ext4).

Reviews

The Raspberry Pi packs a lot of hardware into a sub-£30, credit-card sized package. From its ability to drive Full HD displays without a sweat to its on-board networking and GPIO capabilities, it’s a miniature marvel – but even its most ardent fans would admit that its audio subsystem leaves a little to be desired.
Although digital audio via the HDMI port is acceptable, the analogue audio provided from the 3.5mm jack is extremely low quality. Even when passed through a good-quality external amplifier, the analogue audio is crackly and unpleasant – and there are no input capabilities whatsoever.

Oregon-based APlus Mobile came up with the idea for the “MotherBone PiOne” while trying to add peripherals to the Linux-ready BeagleBone Black and Raspberry Pi Model B single board computers. Faced with the boards’ limitations relative to “real world expandability,” especially in regard to the BeagleBone Black’s power isolation issues, the company decided to develop a baseboard aimed at solving those problems for both hacker SBCs.

"Even though the IT industry and geek culture can be innovative and progressive, the reality is it is often antiquated and backward," said 451 Research analyst Jay Lyman. "This is particularly so when it comes to workplace discrimination and harassment based on gender, sexual orientation, race, age or other factors. You would expect more from good software developers and IT professionals."
