The new week brings a new Linux kernel to users, with some additions which will interest fans of low powered computing as well as those of high powered machines. The new kernel brings support for the Snapdragon 808 and 810 for those who are working with Linux on those SOCs. For the high powered crew, added support for L2 and L3 cache on Intel processors, there is now support for virtual GPUs and The Inquirer mentions that AMD cards should get a bit of a boost. So much for skipping straight to 4.11.
"On the whole, 4.10 didn't end up as small as it initially looked.After the huge release that was 4.9, I expected things to be pretty quiet, but it ended up very much a fairly average release by modern kernel standards. So we have about 13,000 commits (not counting merges – that would be another 1200+ commits if you count those)."
