Linus Torvalds announced that Linux Kernel 6.0 rc4 is now available to download. This is yet another release candidate before the major Linux Kernel 6.0 release scheduled in October.
Linus Torvalds said the fourth release candidate mainly focuses on driver fixes in addition to fixes in architecture, core networking, io_uring, LSM, selftests, and documentation
Talking about the 6.0 rc4 update, Linus Torvalds said,
“It’s Sunday afternoon, which can only mean one thing – another rc release. We’re up to rc4, and things mostly still look fairly normal.
Most of the fixes the past week have been drivers (gpu, networking, gpio, tty, usb, sound… a little bit of everything in other words). But we have the usual mix of fixes elsewhere too, architecture fixes (arm64, loongarch, powerpc, RISC-V, s390, and x86), and various other areas – core networking, filesystems, io_uring, LSM, selftests, and documentation. Some of this is reverts of things that just turned out to be wrong or just not quite ready.”
