Linux 3.6 Delivers Solid Progress

Linux creator Linus Torvalds released the fifth new major Linux kernel release of 2012 late Sunday. The new kernel provides incremental improvements to multiple aspects of the open source operating system.

“There haven’t been any huge new architectures or filesystems — it’s all ‘solid progress,'” Torvalds wrote in his release announcement. “That may not sound all that exciting, but the devil is in the details, and there’s a lot of small fixes all over.”
