Linus Torvalds: Linux 6.6-rc1


Eltelt a két hét a végleges Linux 6.5 kiadása óta, így a beolvasztási időablak (merge window) bezárult. Ez pedig azt is jelzi egyben, hogy Linus kiadta tesztelésre a 6.6-os kernel első prepatchét, a 6.6-rc1-et:

Here we are, two weeks later, and the merge window is closed.

All the stats for 6.6 look fairly normal so far - as always, the bulk
of the patch is drivers (a bit of everything, but networking and gpu
are the two biggest areas), with arch updates coming in as a notable
second, and then we have tooling and documentation.

There's obviously core kernel updates too (filesystem updates,
networking, core VM updates etc) but yeah, all the hardware support -
whether drivers or CPUs - tends to just dwarf all the core changes in
the diffstat.

And as always, there are way too many individual changes - or even
developers - to list for the merge window. We've got 12k+ commits from
1700+ individual developers,  And 800+ merges to tie it all together.
All that is actually quite normal, this seems to be shaping up to be
neither a very small nor a particularly large release.

So below is just my "merge log" which gives some flavor of what got
merged, but does not delve into the details. For those, you'd have to
go to the actual git tree.

Please do give it all a whirl,
