Linus has released the 3.18 kernel. "I'd love to say that we've figured out the problem that plagues 3.17 for a couple of people, but we haven't. At the same time, there's absolutely no point in having everybody else twiddling their thumbs when a couple of people are actively trying to bisect an older issue, so holding up the release just didn't make sense." Highlights in this release include the bpf() system call, some significant networking performance improvements, dozens of new drivers, thousands of fixes, and more.
