Linux Kernel 4.15 Gets Another Big RC, Linus Torvalds Says It’s Not Good at All

If last week’s RC2 was a “bigger than expected” one, than this week the Linux 4.15 kernel saw even more patches and it just got a quite bit RC3 milestone, which Linus Torvalds says it’s big even by RC3 standards and it isn’t a good sign for the development cycle, which could be pushed to the end of January 2018. As for the things that landed in the third Release Candidate of Linux kernel 4.15, we’re looking at mostly updates to the drivers stack, yet the biggest part are some syntactic changes for documentation warnings, as well as perf tooling improvements. Other than that, there are some KVM, core networking, core kernel, architecture changes, and documentation updates.
