Linus Torvalds announced last evening, August 16th, that the second Release Candidate of the upcoming Linux 3.6 kernel is now available for download and testing.

Linux kernel 3.6 Release Candidate 2 brings the usual bug fixes, updated drivers, and general improvements.

"Anyway, with all that said, things don't seem too bad. Yes, I ignored a few pull requests, but I have to say that there weren't all that many of those, and the rest looked pretty calm."

"Sure, there's 330+ commits in there, but considering that it's been two weeks, that's about expected (or even a bit low) for early -rc's. Yes, 3.5 may have been much less for -rc2, but that was unusual." - said Linus Torvalds in the email announcement.
