"Nothing hugely special springs to mind – there's some memory compaction issue that is still being discussed, but I don't think there's anything particularly scary or special that stands out over everything else in the -rc1."
"Depending on what your interest is, you might be excited about the CoDel packet scheduler, or about the GPU driver updates, or the new scsi targets. There is something in here for pretty much anybody," said Linus Torvalds in the email announcement.
