Linux Kernel 3.16
Linux è un popolare sistema operativo open source creato da Linus Torvalds

Note di rilascio:

So nothing particularly exciting happened this week, and 3.16 is out there.

And as usual (previous release being the exception) that means that
the merge window for 3.17 is obviously open. And for the third time in
a row, the timing sucks for me, as I have travel coming up the second
week of the merge window. Many other core developers will be traveling
too, since it´s just before the kernel summit in Chicago.

So we´ll see how the next merge window goes, but I´m not going to
worry about it overmuch. If I end up not having time to do all the
merges, I might delay things into the week of the kernel summit, but
I´ll hope to get most of the big merging done this upcoming week
before any travel takes place, so maybe it won´t come to that. So this
is just a heads-up that the merge window *might* be extended.

Anyway, back to the changes since -rc7: it´s really fairly small stuff
randomly all over, with a third being architecture updates, a third
drivers, and a third "misc" (mainly mm and networking). The
architecture stuff is small ARM updates (mostly DT), some x86 Xen
fixups, some random small powerpc things. The shortlog gives a good
idea of what kind of stuff it all is, but it´s really just 83 commits
(plus merges and the release commit) and about a third of them are
marked for stable.

So while 3.16 looked a bit iffy for a while, things cleared up nicely,
and there was no reason to do extra release candidates like I feared
just a couple of weeks ago.
