Happy Thanksgiving! We are happy to announce that Linus Torvalds has just unveiled the second Release Candidate version of the upcoming Linux kernel 3.13.
Linux kernel 3.13 RC2 is a normal release that includes mostly updated drivers, architecture updates, documentation updates, as well as improvements to filesystems, crypto, etc.
"We're back on the normal weekly schedule, although I'm planning on eventually slipping back to a Sunday release schedule. In the meantime, it's like Xmas every Friday! Or, perhaps more appropriatelynfor the date, Hanukkah."
"Anyway, everything looks normal for an -rc2. Nothing particularly stands out. If you thought rc1 is too scary to test, jump on in now. It's all good," said Linus Torvalds in the official release announcement.
