Nine Collabora Developers Have Contributed 44 Patches to the Linux 4.11 Kernel

Linux 4.11 is now the latest stable kernel that’s available for Linux-based operating systems who want to adopt the new series announced by Linus Torvalds himself on the last day of April 2017. Linux kernel 4.11 brings a lot of improvements and new features like scalable swapping for SSDs or support for OPAL drives. A brand new perf ftrace tool, journalling support for MD RAID5, initial support for Intel Gemini Lake chips, a new statx() system call to replace stat(2), persistent scrollback buffers for VGA consoles, and support for the SMC-R (Shared Memory Communications-RDMA) protocol are also implemented in the Linux 4.11 kernel.
