Linus Torvalds just signed off Linux 5.19-rc6.
Following a rather dull week, Linux 5.19-rc6 was released.
Linus Torvalds just signed off Linux 5.19-rc6, the latest general test and release candidate for the upcoming Linux 5.19. Linux 5.19 is on track for a stable release later this month.
Linux 5.19 has many new features, from hardware support to filesystem enhancements, and various other “interesting” changes to the kernel.
Luckily it was another smooth week for the testing process for Linux 5.19-rc6, with Linus Torvalds wrapping up 5.19-rc6 in the release announcement.
Seems fairly normal for rc6, nothing really stands out here. Mostly minor fixes involving sound and network drivers, and some arm64 dts file updates, and the rest is some self-test updates, and various (mostly) one-liners.
The short log below gives a good overview, and it’s short enough to read all of it with just a scroll:
Perhaps somewhat unusually, I picked up a few bugs in the device tree that were waiting to be fixed, but haven’t actually reached the upstream.
Now that it’s rc6, I’d like to turn off some regression reports without having to wait for another rc to put them in the tree.
Linux 5.19 looks to be in pretty good shape, aside from some AMD GPU regressions, the 5.19 kernel benchmarks I have on hand have been going great, but will check those regressions to see if they are in good shape.
