Linus Torvalds has just released Linux 6.3 as the latest stable kernel release.
Torvalds commented on 6.3 Release Announcement a few minutes ago:
It was a quiet release this time, and last week was really no different. So here we are, on schedule, with 6.3 out and ready to be enjoyed.
That’s not to say something bad couldn’t have been lurking all these weeks, of course, but let’s just take things at face value and hope that all means everything is fine, and it was a really nice controlled firing cycle. that happens.
Obviously, this also means that the merge window for 6.4 will open tomorrow. I already have over two dozen withdrawal requests waiting for me to initiate withdrawals, which I appreciate. I expect to get more when I wake up tomorrow.”
Linux 6.3-rc8 is not guaranteed and Linux 6.3 is shipping now. Last week’s drop was a significant fix for Btrfs’ regression since Linux 6.2 and also a fix for an Intel Gigabit Ethernet adapter that has stopped at about 60% of its top speed over the past three years.
See our Linux 6.3 Features Overview for a look at all the shiny new features for this kernel release. Or if you’re short on time, as of this morning the most interesting features of Linux 6.3 are. Now on to the Linux 6.4 cycle!
