Linux 4.2 released

Linus Torvalds has announced that Linux 4.2 is now available, and that the merge window for 4.3 is now open.

“It wouldn’t have been a mistake to release 4.2 last week after all, but hey, there’s certainly a few fixes here, and it’s not like delaying 4.2 for a week should have caused any problems either,” Torvalds said.

Linux 4.2 includes a re-write of Intel Assembly x86 code, new ARM board support, and a new AMDGPU kernel driver.

Other improvements include F2FS file-system encryption support, NV-DIMM support, and other new Linux hardware support.
