Kernel Log Penguin Linux Kernel 3.3 Tracking

Linux 3.3 has now been released. For details, read "What's new in Linux 3.3".

Previous coverage of the development of Linux 3.3 is listed below:

  • Kernel Log: Linux 3.3 goes into testing
    Linux 3.3 can change the size of ext4 filesystems faster and supports ACPI 5.0, LPAE for ARM processors, Ethernet teaming and hot replace for software RAID. Meanwhile, Linux 3.1 has reached the end of the line, and the Linux Ate My RAM web site explains why Linux often appears to use all of the RAM.
  • Kernel Log: Coming in 3.3 (Part 1) - Networking
    Version 3.3 of the Linux kernel offers another way to team multiple Ethernet devices. Support for "Open vSwitch", a virtual network switch that was specifically developed for virtualised environments, has also been added. Byte Queue Limits are designed to reduce the latencies that cause the much-discussed "buffer bloat".
  • Kernel Log: Coming in 3.3 (Part 4) – Drivers
    From Linux 3.3, the nouveau driver will support newer GeForce chips and Intel's RC6 GPU power saving technology should finally work properly. The Poulsbo graphics driver and some Hyper-V drivers have left the staging area, while drivers for Android have entered it.
