openSUSE Tumbleweed GNU/Linux Operating System Now Powered by Linux Kernel 4.7

Yes, you are reading that right! openSUSE Tumbleweed is now officially powered by Linux kernel 4.7, which replaces the Linux 4.6.4 kernel that was used in the GNU/Linux distribution until August 4, 2016. The Linux 4.7 kernel was officially released on July 24, 2016, by Linus Torvalds, and it brings support for newer AMD Radeon GPUs, such as the RX 480, as well as the “schedutil” frequency governor to the cpufreq dynamic frequency scaling subsystem.
