Linus Torvalds announced a few hours ago, April 7, that the sixth Release Candidate of the upcoming Linux 3.9 kernel was made available for download and testing.Linux kernel 3.9 RC6 comprises several small fixes and a few reverts, including some small arch fixes (x86, ARM, s390, mips, tile, alpha), networking, drivers, as well as minor filesystem updates (EXT4, gfs2, tiny ReiserFS xattr fix).
"Nothing really exciting stands out, I think the appended ShortLog gives a good overview for people who want to wallow in the details."
"Things seem to be on track, which means that unless something comes up, rc7 will probably be the last rc as usual," Linus Torvalds said in the official announcement.
