Linux Kernel 3.14 RC3 Released with Updated Drivers and Fixes

The third RC build of Linux kernel 3.14 is now available for download

On February 16, Linus Torvalds announced the third Release Candidate (RC) version of the upcoming Linux kernel 3.14, which brings various fixes and improvements.

Linux kernel 3.14 RC3 includes several updated drivers (GPU, media, block, etc.), architecture updates (x86, ARM64, s390), filesystem improvements (Btrfs, VFS, NFS, OCFS, and kernfs fixes), as well as various mm and tooling (perf) improvements.

“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,” Linus Torvalds said in the official announcement.

Download Linux kernel 3.14 RC3 right now from Softpedia, but keep in mind that this is an unstable release and it should not be installed on production machines. It is intended for testing purposes only.
