Linux 3.2 Kernel Is Released

Code Snippet

Although a bit behind schedule, the new Linux 3.2 Kernel has now been released.  Codenamed “Precise Pangolin”, it boasts a mountain of changes, but here are a few that everyone is talking about.

  • Improved power management
  • Proportional Rate Reduction (PRR) added in the TCP stack for faster network performance
  • File system optimizations
  • Faster transfers of large amounts of data

So get compiling and tell us if the new kernel is all it’s cracked up to be, or if the rest of us should wait an iteration or two.
