Linus Torvalds Announces First Linux Kernel 5.11 Release Candidate

That’s right, two weeks have passed since Linux kernel 5.10 LTS was released and the merge window of the Linux kernel 5.11 opened, so now it’s time to get busy again and test the next major Linux kernel branch, which looks to be an average release, not too big, but not too small either. The biggest changes in Linux kernel 5.11 are being made around the AMD GPU open-source graphics driver for AMD Radeon GPUs, which received a ???huge dump??? of descriptor header files, along with support for the AMD ???Van Gogh??? GPU family, which looks to be about two-thirds of the entire RC1 release.
