Linus Torvalds has released the Linux 3.0-rc5 kernel on this Monday evening. Around 25% of the changes in this week's release candidate are driver related while file-system changes account for nearly half and the rest of the work is scattered throughout.

To no surprise, this release does not carry any proper fix to the Linux 2.6.38 kernel power regression nor will it in the Linux 3.0 merge window. There doesn't appear to be any particularly exciting changes in this kernel release candidate but just a variety of regression fixes scattered throughout the tree.

More details in the release announcement of Linux 3.0-rc5 by Linus Torvalds on LKML.org.
