The 3.8 kernel is out
[Kernel] Posted Feb 19, 2013 0:33 UTC (Tue) by corbet
Linus has released the 3.8 kernel.
"The release got delayed a couple of days because I was waiting for
confirmation of a small patch, but hey, we could also say that it was all
intentional, and that this is the special 'Presidents' Day Release'. It
sounds more planned that way, no?" Some of the headline features in this
release include metadata integrity checking in the xfs filesystem, the
foundation for much improved NUMA scheduling, kernel memory usage accounting and associated
usage limits, inline data support for small
files in the ext4 filesystem, nearly complete user namespace support, and much more.
See the (in-progress) KernelNewbies 3.8 page for
lots of details.
