Linux 6.10-rc3 released with nothing to highlight

Linux 6.10-rc3

Sometimes something happens and everything goes as expected or something was expected that in the end doesn't happen. In these cases it is usually said that there has been news that, either due to its absence or lack of news, the most important thing it has to say is that it has nothing to say. That happened this week with the launch de Linux 6.10-rc3, about which Linus Torvalds says absolutely nothing stands out.

The size is also where it should, but, without more information about it, we are the ones who have to intuit that it is something bigger than that of the RC2 from last week. The development and its size begins normally in the first week and the second and increases in the third, which is when the corrections are made. If Linux 6.10-rc3 is as expected in an rc3, the size should be larger, and if nothing stands out it is that the size has not gone out of hand.

Linux 6.10-rc3: boring week in that nothing stands out

«Hmm. Absolutely nothing stands out here.

We have driver fixes (network, gpu, HID, and x86 platform drivers account for the bulk), architecture fixes (mostly kvm related), and some kernel updates (filesystems, mm, network core) . And the usual random corrections.

That is to say, nothing looks particularly strange and, size-wise, it's pretty much where you'd expect from an rc3«.

If everything goes as calm as in this and the previous two weeks, Linux 6.10 will arrive after seven Release Candidates on July 14th. If something changes for the worse and requires the eighth RC, it will arrive seven days later, on the 21st of the same month.

Ubuntu users interested in installing it when the time comes can perform manual installation or use tools with a graphical interface such as Mainline Kernels. Although what we recommend is to stay with the kernel offered by the operating system unless you are experiencing a very serious failure that a new version of the kernel could fix. The Ubuntu kernel is an official starting one, but then it is Canonical who adds the necessary patches. Ubuntu 24.10 Oracular Oriole will arrive in October, in all likelihood, with Linux 6.11.
