Linus Torvalds Announces a Fairly Normal Third Linux 4.10 Release Candidate

According to Linus Torvalds, things appear to be back to their normal state, and it looks like Linux kernel 4.10 RC3 is a fairly normal development release that consists of two-thirds updated drivers, and half of the remaining patch are improvements to various hardware architectures. There are also some minor networking and filesystems fixes. The development cycle of the Linux 4.10 kernel is back on track, which means that we should see more goodies with the next Release Candidates, RC4 coming December 15. Considering the fact that things were so slow until now, there might be eight RCs released for Linux 4.10, which should hit the streets around Valentine’s Day.
