So I released it yesterday but didn't write a message about it because I didn't feel up to it. It's a pretty normal release - roughly 60% drivers, 20% arch updates, and 20% "all over" - filesystems, documentation, tools, you name it. Nothing hugely special springs to mind - there's some memory compaction issue that is still being discussed, but I don't think there's anything particularly scary or special that stands out over everything else in the -rc1. Appended is my "merge shortlog" - largely automatically generated from my merge messages. There's probably a few merges missing just because it's generated from my free-form messages that *tend* to have a particular format, but if I screwed up somewhere it won't necessarily have triggered my grep. Also note that the "from xyz" is about who sent me the pull request, not who coded it (and some trees - arm-soc and x86 in particular - tend to have multiple maintainers too, and so the person who sends me the pull request is not necessariyl the sole proprietor of the tree, just the "point man"). Depending on what your interest is, you might be excited about the CoDel packet scheduler, or about the GPU driver updates, or the new scsi targets. There is something in here for pretty much anybody.
