Linus has announced the final release of the 4.2 kernel. "So judging by how little happened this week, it wouldn't have been a mistake to release 4.2 last week after all, but hey, there's certainly a few fixes here, and it's not like delaying 4.2 for a week should have caused any problems either." Headline features in this release include the security module stacking patches, the delay-gradient congestion-control algorithm, improvements to writeback management in control groups, a lot of important persistent-memory infrastructure, and more.
