Linus Torvalds Announces Linux Kernel 4.2 RC7, Final Release Might Come Out Next Week

Linux kernel 4.2 RC7 is a pretty small Release Candidate that brings with it mostly updated drivers, especially for things like networking, Xen, GPU, MD, and NTB, but also some architecture updates and various non-driver networking updates. If things calm down, we will see the release of Linux kernel 4.2 on August 24, 2015.
