Users can now test the second Release Candidate of Linux kernel 3.14
Linus Torvalds has announced on February 9 that the second Release Candidate (RC) version of the upcoming Linux kernel 3.14 is available for download and testing.Linux kernel 3.14 RC2 includes updated drivers (GPU, media, block, etc.), architecture updates (x86, arm64 and s390), filesystem improvements (Btrfs, NFS, OCFS, VFS, as well as some kernfs fixes), tooling (perf), and mm fixes.
“It's been pretty quiet, actually, which should make me happy. But I have a suspicious nature, and I'm going to wait to see if the other shoe drops, and people are just lulling me into a false sense of security. Because I know kernel developers, and they are sneaky.”
“I suspect Davem (to pick somebody not at random) is giggling to himself, waiting for this release message, planning to send me some big-ass pull request tomorrow. Because that's the kind of people you guys are,” Linus Torvalds said in the official announcement for Linux kernel 3.14 RC2.
