Raspberry Pi’s Default Firmware Updated to Linux Kernel 4.0

In more good news for Raspberry Pi users, it would appear that there’s now a Linux kernel 4.1 tree that currently acts as a testbed for experimental kernel commits. Soon, the default firmware will be rebased on Linux 4.1 kernel. All Raspberry Pi users are urged to report any regressions they might find with Linux kernel 4.0, especially when compared to the Linux 3.18 kernel series. To test, run the “sudo apt-get upgrade” command in a terminal emulator.
