Linux Kernel 3.1 RC2 Released

Linux Kernel 3.1 RC2 Released


Linus Torvalds has announced the release of Linux kernel 3.1 rc2. There isn't too much to see and Linus notes that this is a fairly calm release for coming just one week after the close of the Linux 3.1 kernel merge window. 

As LKML is down at the moment, below is the 3.1-rc2 release announcement from Linus:
Hey, nice calm first week after the merge window. Good job. Or maybe people are just being lazy, and everybody is on vacation. Whatever. Don't tell me. I'm reasonably happy, I want to stay that way.
That said, I would be happy if it calmed down further. 300+ commits for -rc2 is good, but please make me even happier for -rc3 by ONLY sending me real fixes. Think of it as "fairly late in the -rc series", because I really want to compensate for the merge window being fairly chaotic.
Linus
