It’s that time again as Linux announces a brand new Linux Kernel; this time is 3.15. According to Linus Torvalds it’s been a much longer and tumultuous development cycle than normal, going as far as an rc8 just to be sure. It’s made its way through development though and the kernel is not out for everyone to use.
Linux kernel 3.15 while not a major new kernel in the line has its own major updates: as well as the usual performance and compatibility updates it also now supports the new Dual Shock 4 controller that comes with the PS4 and new EFI booting capabilities. Specifically, EFI 64 bit kernels can be booted from 32 bit firmware.
