Linus Torvalds Announces Fifth Linux 4.10 Kernel RC, Everything Looks Nominal

Yes, you’re reading it right, Linus Torvalds made his regular Sunday announcement a few minutes ago, informing the community about the immediate availability of Linux kernel 4.10 RC5, which arrives one week after the fourth Release Candidate. And it looks like things have started to calm down. With today’s announcement, which was very brief this time, Linus Torvalds is also informing the Linux community interesting in the development of the Linux kernel that Linux 4.10 might just have a regular release schedule, with a total of seven RC (Release Candidate) builds, and not eight like some other kernel releases received in the past.
