The Linux 3.7 Kernel
 
;)Hi:

Good news; there is support for this new ARM architecture and lot's of efforts to improve things that will make it easier on the Linux user.

There are additional 'Related Linux Kernel News' articles at the bottom of the page if your interested and want to learn.

Anyone know about how long it takes the Linux Developers to work on a new kernel and get it ready for release?

That varies. Bugfixes can go in immediately on basic testing. New features requiring many changes in different areas can take quite a while. Others get developed in installments. You can usually see features where the help says "Set this if you're a developer working on it, otherwise go away."

Didn't know that others get developed in installments.

I'd like to learn more. After reading an article about a man that 'patches the kernel' for Red Hat I was not only surprized that patching the kernel was a just a hobby to him but was inspired to learn more.
It sounds like being a Linux Developer is not only a demanding position but a rewarding one as well.
Oh, and not to mention the credentials that are required/on demand.

Where can I learn more about the involvement, developement and patches made to the kernel?
