The 3.6 kernel was released on September 30
. In the announcement
When I did the -rc7 announcement a week ago, I said I might have to
do an -rc8, but a week passed, and things have been calm, and I
honestly cannot see a major reason to do another rc. So here it
is, 3.6 final.
Notable features in 3.6 include TCP small
queues, the client-side TCP fast open
implementation (server side has been merged for 3.7), IOMMU groups, the Btrfs send/receive feature, the VFIO device virtualization mechanism, and
more. See the KernelNewbies
3.6 page for details.
Stable updates: 3.5.5, 3.4.12 and 3.0.44 were released on October 2; each
contains a longer-than-usual list of important fixes.
