With probably two more releases to go before the official Linux 3.10 release and Torvalds promising profanity last week if things didn’t shape up, things are definitely looking brighter as the pull requests that take care of only regressions have decreased.

Torvalds did warn though that if people tried to push things that don’t matter for Linux 3.10-rc7, he probably would be more upset. Some of the changes that were included in rc6 included architecture changes for x86, powerpc, mips, arm, and s390. Improvements and changes were also incorporated in ceph and xfs filesystems along with networking and driver updates for sound, wireless, md, gpu, and block among others.
