As we said Last week, Christmas is over all over the world, so things are back to normal. If last week was true, this is much more true, as Linus Torvalds indicates in the mail you sent to report the launch of Linux 6.2-rc4. He had to spend time in airports and traveling, but everything looked good for the famous Finnish developer and we already have a new RC.
The size of Linux 6.2-rc4 already falls within the normal, more or less in the middle of a running release at this stage of development. So not only is it now clear that everyone is back to business as usual, but it also looks like there are no issues that would suggest an eighth release candidate will be necessary.
Linux 6.2 will be the kernel for Lunar Lobster
It's Sunday afternoon in some parts of the world, and since I'll be spending the rest of the day in airports and flights, that's enough for me.
So here's another -rc version, this time with almost everyone back from winter break, and things should be back to normal. And you can see that in size, this is about in the middle of a regular rc size for this moment in the merge window.
The stats look pretty normal too, perhaps with a slight emphasis on networks catching up after the holidays. But there are several changes all around - take a look at the attached log to get an idea of what's happened.
6.2 will arrive as a stable version on February 12. It will be the kernel version used by Ubuntu 23.04 Lunar Lobster, scheduled for April 20.

Very good. If it's not a bother, I would like to be able to download the header image of the article, to be able to use it as a desktop background. For what I would appreciate if you send me the download link to firstname.lastname@example.org in high resolution. I liked it a lot but I prefer to have it without the text, just with the penguin. Thanks in advance.
Didn't you have worse taste?
