Linus Torvalds Outs Linux Kernel 4.10 Release Candidate 6, the Biggest So Far

If last week’s fifth RC was relatively normal and kept small, the Linux kernel 4.10 Release Candidate 6 snapshot appears to be much bigger because of a flood of patches that landed on Friday and this weekend. This makes today’s RC release the biggest so far for the Linux 4.10 series. That being said, and considering the fact that the development cycle of the upcoming Linux 4.10 kernel series, which was dubbed by Linus Torvalds as “Fearless Coyote,” is nearing completion, we have all the reasons to believe that there will be just one more RC build announced next week, on February 5.
