Linux 2819 Published by

The second Linux Kernel 6.2 release candidate, which primarily includes fixes for nvme, kvm, and i915 drm work, has been released by Linus Torvalds.



Linux kernel 6.2-rc2 released

So the week started so slow due to the holidays that I thought I might not have any reason to do an rc2 at all, but by the end of the week I did end up getting a smattering of pull requests, so here we are. It's tiny, even smaller than usual for an rc2, and honestly, I'd expect that trend to continue for rc3. A lot of people are still off for another week on a well-deserved winter holiday, and so I suspect things will continue to be fairly quiet.

Anyway, last week saw mainly some nvme fixes, some i915 drm work, and some kvm fixes (and kvm testing fixes). See below for the full shortlog, and if you're not still in a food coma from the holidays, please do give this all a good testing.
