Linux Kernel 5.7 Gets First Point Release, It’s Now Ready for Mass AdoptionMarius Nestor

Launched a week ago on May 31st, 2020, the Linux 5.7 kernel series introduced several goodies like a new and improved exFAT file system implementation, frequency invariant scheduler accounting feature for x86 CPUs, and a thermal-aware scheduler for better overall performance. All in all, like most new kernel series, it’s worth upgrading to it. This means that the Linux 5.7 kernel series is now marked as ???stable??? on the kernel.org website, which means that most Linux OS integrators can now install it on their GNU/Linux distributions.
