Previous coverage of the development of Linux 3.8 is listed below:

  • Linux 3.8's features staked out
    With the first pre-release, it is now confirmed that Linux 3.8 will include the F2FS filesystem, a graphics driver for NVIDIA Tegra, and foundations for balanced process placement in NUMA systems, and that support for Intel 386 chips has been dropped.

  • Kernel Log: Coming in 3.8 (Part 2) - Infrastructure
    Users not in possession of root privileges will in future be able to set up containers in which to run software which requires them. Linux 3.8 will, under certain circumstances, use less memory and will include improvements for NUMA systems. Support for Intel's 386 chips has been dropped.

  • Kernel Log: Coming in 3.8 (Part 3) – Drivers
    The Linux kernel now includes everything that is needed to use 3D acceleration with all GeForce graphics chips. Drivers have also been added for a Wireless Gigabit chip and a PCIe WLAN chip from Realtek.
