The 4.10 Linux kernel has been released


The official announcement:

Quote:
So there it is, the final 4.10 release. It's been quiet since rc8, but we did end up fixing several small issues, so the extra week was all good.

On the whole, 4.10 didn't end up as small as it initially looked. After the huge release that was 4.9, I expected things to be pretty quiet, but it ended up very much a fairly average release by modern kernel standards. So we have about 13,000 commits (not counting merges - that would be another 1200+ commits if you count those). The work is all over, obviously - the shortlog below is just the changes in the last week, since rc8.

Go out and verify that it's all good, and I'll obviously start pulling stuff for 4.11 on Monday.

From Kernel newbies:

Quote:
Linux 4.10 changelog.

Summary: This release adds support for virtualized GPUs, a new 'perf c2c' tool for cacheline contention analysis in NUMA systems, a new 'perf sched timehist' command for a detailed history of task scheduling, improved writeback management that should make the system more responsive under heavy writing load, a new hybrid block polling method that uses less CPU than pure polling, a feature that allows to attach eBPF programs to cgroups, an experimental MD RAID5 writeback cache, support for Intel Cache Allocation Technology, and many other improvements and new drivers.
Have any LQ members started using 4.10?
