Good news everyone,

The Linux Test Project test suite stable release for *April 2014* has
been released.

Since the last release 210 patches by 27 authors were merged.

Notable changes are:

* Continued effort to cleanup old testcases
  (about 30 testcases were cleaned up/rewritten)

* 20 new syscall testcases
  15 existing testcases increased in coverage
  (pselect, mprotect, mknodat, fchonwat, linkat, fanotify, inotify, fcntl, ...)

* new tcp_fastopen, rcutorture and acpi_cpufreq testcases

* out-of-tree build as well as cross compilation were fixed

* bashism in runltp and few scripts was fixed
  (should work fine on Debian with dash now)

* ext4 features tests were fixed and added to default run

* few testcases were fixed not to incorrectly fail on Btrfs

* and many more smaller fixes

The latest version of the test-suite contains 3000+ tests for the Linux
OS and can be downloaded at:

The project pages as well as GIT repository are hosted on GitHub for
quite some time now:
