Linus Torvalds Announces Linux Kernel 4.7 Release Candidate 4, Go Test It Now

We were waiting for the Release Candidate 4 build of Linux kernel 4.7 to appear online on Sunday, June 19, but it looks like Linus Torvalds had other plans for the weekend that just passed, so he dropped a short announcement an hour after midnight, on June 20, 2016. According to Mr. Torvalds, the fourth Release Candidate of Linux kernel 4.7 includes about two-thirds drivers, multiple architecture updates, small improvements to various filesystems, updated documentation, as well as bunch of other patches to core kernel components and the usual bug fixes.
