[$] What’s coming in the next kernel release (part 1)

Post Syndicated from corbet original https://lwn.net/Articles/775698/rss

When the 4.20 kernel was released on
December 23, Linus Torvalds indicated that he would try to keep to the
normal merge window schedule despite the presence of the holidays in the
middle of it. Thus far, he seems to be trying to live up to that;
just over 8,700 changesets have been merged for the next release, which
seems likely to be called 5.0. A number of long-awaited features are
finally landing in the kernel with this release.
