Linux 4.7 and Linux 4.8

  • Linux Kernel 4.7 Officially Released, Introduces Support for Radeon RX480 GPUs
    Today, July 24, 2016, after a week of holiday fun, Linus Torvalds has had the great pleasure of announcing the release of Linux kernel 4.7 for all GNU/Linux operating systems. The Linux 4.7 kernel has been in development for the past two months, but that shouldn't surprise anyone who is either reading our website on a regular basis or keeping pace with the Linux kernel development cycle, which was very normal for this branch. A total of seven Release Candidate (RC) testing builds were released since May 29, 2016, which introduced numerous new features and improvements.

  • The Size Of Different DRM Graphics Drivers In Linux 4.7
    Last October I looked at The Size Of The Different Open-Source Linux DRM/Mesa Graphics Drivers, but with it being nearly one year since then and Linux 4.7 due out today, I decided to run some fresh L.O.C. measurements on the popular DRM/KMS drivers to see their current sizes. This lines-of-code counting was mostly done out of a curiosity factor. In this article I'm just looking at the in-kernel DRM code and not the Mesa drivers, DDX drivers, LLVM back-ends, or anything else in user-space related to the open-source graphics drivers.

This hardened usercopy is to be exposed as the CONFIG_HARDENED_USERCOPY option within the kernel.

The guys over elementary OS have released a second Beta version of the highly anticipated elementary OS 0.4 "Loki" operating system, fixing numerous of the issues reported by users since the first Beta. This time, the announcement was made by Daniel 'DanRabbit' Foré, who reports that more than 70 bugs reported by public beta testers since last month's Beta release have been squashed, and that many of the fixes are in fact configuration changes, which means that they won't be available to those running the first Beta build, so they'll have to make a fresh install.
