Linus Torvalds announced yesterday, September 1st, that the fourth Release Candidate of the upcoming Linux 3.6 kernel is available for download and testing.

Linux kernel 3.6 Release Candidate 4 comprises 40% arch updates (x86, PowerPC, ARM, MPIS), 20% Btrfs filesystem improvements, and 20% driver updates.

"The kernel summit is over, and most people have either returned or are returning from San Diego. Probably as a result of lots of maintainers having been away, it's been pretty quiet - despite it being ten days (rather than the usual week) since -rc3."

Shortlog appended, as you can see it's just fairly random. I'm hoping we're entering the boring/stable part of the -rc windows, and that things won't really pick up speed just because people are getting home,” Linus Torvalds said in the email announcement.

Download Linux kernel 3.6 RC4 right now from Softpedia. Remember that this is a development release and it is intended for testing purposes only.
