Linux 3.14-rc5 Brings Stabilization To The New Kernel
Written by Michael Larabel in Linux Kernel on 2 March 2014 at 11:08 PM EST. Add A Comment
The Linux 3.14-rc5 kernel was announced this afternoon by Linus Torvalds and it marks a fairly calm week for kernel development.

Linus Torvalds wrote in his 3.14-rc5 announcement:
Another week, another rc.

Things were fairly calm, and fairly normal. Drivers account for just under 60% of the patch (sound dominates due to a couple of patches that are larger but trivial, but there's various misc oneliners all over). The rest is mostly arch updates (mainly powerpc and xtensa), and then there's a smattering of small stuff elsewhere.

Not a lot. Which is just how I like it.

Go verify that it all works for you..
