Kernel release status

The current development kernel is 3.16-rc1, released on June 15. Linus said:

It may have been a slightly unusual two week merge window, in that it's only one week since the release of 3.15 and the first week overlapped with the last -rc for that previous release, but that doesn't seem to have affected development much. Things look normal, and if anything, this is one of the bigger release windows rather than on the smaller side. It's not quite as big as the merge window for 3.15, but it's actually not that far off.

In the end, 11,364 changesets were pulled in during the merge window (3.15-rc1 had 12,034).

Stable updates: 3.15.1, 3.14.8, 3.10.44, and 3.4.94 all came out on June 16. The list of fixes is relatively short this time, but they certainly look worth having.
