Annunciato il rilascio della versione 3.7 del Kernel Linux

Whee. After an extra rc release, 3.7 is now out. After a few more trials at fixing things, in the end we ended up reverting the kswapd changes that caused problems. And with the extra rc, I had decided to risk doing the buffer.c cleanups that would otherwise have just been marked for stable during the next merge window, and had enough time to fix a few problems that people found there too.

There's also a fix for a SCSI driver bug that was exposed by the last-minute workqueue fixes in rc8.

Other than that, there's a few networking fixes, and some trivial fixes for sparc and MIPS.

NVidia è entrata a far parte della Linux Foundation, organizzazione no-profit dedicata a promuovere la crescita di Linux. NVidia si va così ad aggiungere a Intel e AMD che sono soci da tempo della fondazione. Altri soci di rilievo della Linux Foundation sono IBM, Google, Oracle, Cisco, Adobe, Samsung, Siemens. Al momento non è ancora chiaro se questo comporterà delle modifiche nella politica di NVidia sui driver, NVidia ha finora rilasciato driver proprietari per le sue schede grafiche sotto Linux.
