Kernel Log penguin An enhanced Ext4 filesystem, an optimised TCP stack and support for thin provisioning in the Device Mapper are some of the most important new features of the freshly released Linux 3.2. The latest kernel version also brings with it a host of new and improved drivers which, among other things, address graphics hardware from Intel and NVIDIA and wireless devices from Atheros and Broadcom.

An overview of these and the other advances made is available in a new feature article on The H entitled What's new in Linux 3.2. The article also looks at what changes are already being prepared for Linux 3.3. Further background information is also available in The H's five part "What's coming in 3.2" series.
