KERNEL 4.10 RELEASED

Linus Torvalds has released version 4.10 of the Linux kernel. This will find it’s way into everyone’s distribution as time permits.

THE POST

On the whole, 4.10 didn’t end up as small as it initially looked. After the huge release that was 4.9, I expected things to be pretty quiet, but it ended up very much a fairly average release by modern kernel standards. So we have about 13,000 commits (not counting merges – that would be another 1200+ commits if you count those). The work is all over, obviously – the shortlog below is just the changes in the last week, since rc8.

COMMENT

We expect it will be several weeks for validation to complete.
