After almost two months of development and no less than eight RCs (Release Candidates), the Linux 4.19 kernel series is now available as the most advanced kernel on the market for Linux-based operating systems. It was released by Greg Kroah-Hartman as Linus Torvalds two a few weeks off from doing any kernel maintenance. Highlights of the Linux 4.19 kernel series include initial support for the recently announced Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) wireless protocol, which will be coming to routers sometime next year, a brand-new asynchronous I/O polling interface, better protection in standard directories like /tmp, and CAKE network queue management support.
