First Arch Linux Snapshot Powered by Linux Kernel 5.7 Is Here

Arch Linux 2020.07.01 has been released today as July 2020’s ISO snapshot, and it’s the first to ship with the latest Linux 5.7 kernel series. While not the latest, Linux 5.7.6 is included in the Arch Linux 2020.07.01 image as the default kernel. As a reminder, Linux kernel 5.7 brings a new and improved exFAT file system implementation, better performance through a new thermal-aware scheduler, improved security via new BPF-based Linux Security Module, new features for some x86 CPUs, and many other changes.
