Linux 4.11-rc7 Kernel might be released next week


Linus Torvalds has announced the seventh weekly test build of the upcoming Linux 4.11 kernel. He informed that this Easter kernel update should be the last test release if nothing else comes up in the next week.

In his tweet, he said that, "We're in the late rc phase, and this may be the last rc if nothing surprising happens. Things have been pretty calm this past week (the beginning of the week seemed particularly calm, and then as usual Friday happened..). We have a number of reverts for things that didn't work out and aren't worth trying to fix at this point, that's also normal (and people will look at it for the next version instead)."

Some of the features include AMDGPU power management, frame-buffer compression, DisplayPort MST audio, Geminilake graphics support, Secure Boot Code Refactoring and TinyDRM. It has Turbo Boost Max 3.0 processor and a variety of KVM improvements, and also EXT4 fixes.

The new update contains a large list of patches and features that is waiting to be updated by its users. Hope there is no other roadblocks to slow down the 4.11 release.
