Linux 3.1 Kernel Development Drags On With RC10

Development of the Linux 3.1 kernel has dragged on with Linus Torvalds releasing the Linux 3.1-rc10 kernel.

While it looked like Linux 3.1-rc9 was the last, Linus decided to go ahead and do the 3.1-rc10 release. He plans to release the Linux 3.1 kernel by the Linux Kernel Summit next week in Prague, so part of the reason with this timing may be for the Linux 3.2 kernel merge window not colliding with the kernel conference at a sub-optimal time.

The Linux 3.1-rc10 doesn't offer up a whole lot besides some MIPS architecture updates, XFS/Btrfs fixes, and driver fixes. Read more in the release announcement.
