“Expect final 4.4 next weekend, unless something very unexpected happens.
See Linux-Kernel Archive: Linux 4.4-rc8I’m looking forward to the new kernel. There’s nothing seriously wrong with the version I’m running but there are always a few improvements that could help and from time to time there are new features. My present kernel, 4.1.x has long term support from Greg Kroah-Hartman and he’s also adopting 4.4.x. That one might outlive Beast as I plan to switch to ARM this year. There are lots of ARMed tweaks in the latest kernel and I may well upgrade to Debian GNU/Linux 9/Stretch in 2016 so I have plenty of positive changes on the horizon.

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.
