“I’d almost certainly ready to just release the final 4.4, but will probably do an rc8 just to not open the merge window while people are still recovering from the holidays.”
See Linux-Kernel Archive: Linux 4.4-rc7Linus Torvalds has just released Linux 4.4-rc7, so in a week or two we could have Linux 4.4 out. This is of special interest to me because Greg Kroah-Hartman has adopted this for long term support. I expect to install it on an ARMed device sooner or later and replace Beast. I expect to live long enough to see that… I’ve also made a tiny contribution to Linux that might come out with 4.4, a spelling error-correction in a comment… 😉

My MissionMy observations and opinions about IT are based on 40 years of use in science and technology and lately, in education. I like IT that is fast, cost-effective and reliable. My first use of GNU/Linux in 2001 was so remarkably better than what I had been using, I feel it is important work to share GNU/Linux with the world. Now that I'm retired I still use GNU/Linux on every computer in my home except the smartphones which run Android/Linux.
Lately, I've been giving lots of thought to the world I inherited and which I will leave to my descendants. I'm planting grass, trees, flowers and vegetables in my large lot and I've ordered a Solo EV. I plan to charge my Solo by means of a tracking solar array. Life is good if you have a purpose. I do.
