Linux kernel 3.11 released

Linus Torvalds has announced the release of kernel 3.11. He wrote on the mailing list:

As some people noticed, I got distracted (“Ooh, look, a squirrel..”) and never wrote an announcement for -rc7. My bad. But it wasn’t actually all that interesting a release apart from the date, and it had a silly compile error in ohci-pci if you hadn’t enabled CONFIG_PM_RUNTIME, so we’ll just forget -rc7 ever happened, ok? Instead, go and get the real 3.11 release, which is out there, all shiny and ready to be compiled and loved.

Since rc7 (ok, I lied, it happened) there’s been just small fixes. Most of them came in from the networking tree, but there’s some all over: some random filesystem fixes, a couple of sound fixes, a /proc/timer_list fix, things like that. Nothing really stands out (unless you happened to use the new soft-dirty code, that had a buglet that could really hurt), but let’s hope we don’t have some silly configuration that doesn’t even compile this time around.

We are looking for aspiring bloggers and journalists for The Mukt. If you are interested, apply now!
