News briefs for November 5, 2018.
Linux kernel 4.20-rc1 is out. Linus writes, "This was a fairly big
merge window, but it didn't break any
records, just solid. And things look pretty regular, with about 70% of
the patch is driver updates (gpu drivers are looming large as usual,
but there's changes all over). The rest is arch updates (x86, arm64,
arm, powerpc and the new C-SKY architecture), header files,
networking, core mm and kernel, and tooling." See the LKML post for more
