Linux 5.11-rc4

Linux 5.11 development is not moving fast. The highlight so far is that the second RC was tiny, all normal considering everyone was thinking about Christmas. Everything started to return to normal last week, and the father of Linux says that Linux 5.11-rc4, released yesterday, it is still quite normal, so here we could almost say that the news is that there is no news.

The size of Linux 5.11-rc4 is in a very centered mean, and there’s nothing to be scared of, all according to a Torvalds who looks like he wouldn’t freak out or develop with his room engulfed in flames. In this week’s short email he mentions that the only weird thing is that the new amp mode tuning support shows up pretty clear, and it’s one of those hardware enablement things that should be completely invisible to people who don’t have that. hardware.

Linux 5.11 will land in February

On the differential itself, the new amp mode tuning support shows up pretty clearly, it’s one of those hardware-enabling things that should be completely invisible to people who don’t have that hardware, but it ends up being around a fifth. part of the entire rc4 patch.

The previous version of the Linux kernel was an LTS, like v5.4, but Hirsute Hippo will not be, so it will use the kernel closest to launch. That kernel will be, except for a major and unlikely surprise, Linux 5.11 that is being developed right now. Other operating systems, such as most of those that use the Rolling Release development model, will use it shortly after the stable release that is scheduled for release. February 14th if they throw seven CRs or a week later if it takes an octave.
