What’s new in Linux 3.1

“About !!! weeks after the version jump to 3.0, Linus Torvalds
has now released the second kernel in the 3.x series. Without the
break-in at kernel.org, the new version would probably have been
released three to four weeks earlier, as the temporary
unavailability of the central server structure slightly hampered
the kernel developers’ work. However, the scope of modifications
compares quite well with that of the new kernel’s direct
predecessors, as another round of advancements enhances the range
of features and hardware support of Linux.

Users are likely to benefit from these advancements in the near
future, because distributions such as Fedora 16, which is due to be
released in November, are already planning to use kernel version
3.1.
