Linux Kernel 6.2 Officially Released

Linux Kernel 6.2 Officially Released

More than a month after the release of Linux Kernel 6.1, Linux Kernel 6.2 is now available for download. As usual, Linus Torvalds announces the release and general availability of Linux 6.2.

Linux Kernel 6.2 Officially Released

So here we are, right on (the extended) schedule, with 6.2 out.

Nothing unexpected happened last week, with just a random selection of
small fixes spread all over, with nothing really standing out. The
shortlog is tiny and appended below, you can scroll through it if
you're bored.

Wed have a couple of small things that Thorsten was tracking on the
regression side, but I wasn't going to apply any last-minute patches
that weren't actively pushed by maintainers, so they will have to show
up for stable. Nothing seemed even remotely worth trying to delay
things for.

And this obviously means that the 6.3 merge window will open tomorrow,
and I already have 30+ pull requests queued up, which I really
appreciate. I like how people have started to take the whole "ready
for the merge window" to heart.

But in the meantime, please do give 6.2 a testing. Maybe it's not a
sexy LTS release like 6.1 ended up being, but all those regular
pedestrian kernels want some test love too.
