Med støtte for AMD RX 480
I mai i år startet arbeidet med versjon 4.7 av Linux-kjernen, i dag kan Linus Torvalds bekrefte at den er tilgjengelig for nedlastning.
Lanseringen ble utsatt noe på grunn av reise og under kan du lese et utdrag fra Torsvalds e-post i forbindelse med Linux 4.7:
«So, after a slight delay due to my travels, I’m back, and 4.7 is out. Despite it being two weeks since rc7, the final patch wasn’t all that big, and much of it is trivial one- and few-liners. There’s a couple of network drivers that got a bit more loving.
Appended is the shortlog since rc7 for people who care: it’s fairly spread out, with networking and some intel Kabylake GPU fixes being the most noticeable ones. But there’s random small noise spread all over. And obviously, this means that the merge window for 4.8 is open.
Judging by the linux-next contents, that’s going to be a bigger release than the current one (4.7 really was fairly calm, I blame at least partly summer in the northern hemisphere).»
