Linux kernel 6.1 is out now

Linus Torvalds has officially released the Linux kernel 6.1, and as usual there’s absolutely tons of new features and fixes.

From the announcement “So here we are, a week late, but last week was nice and slow, and I’m much happier about the state of 6.1 than I was a couple of weeks ago when things didn’t seem to be slowing down.”. Torvalds also mentioned he will “be pretty strict about the merge window rules” as the plan is to have a calm holiday season.

As for some of what’s new:

  • Initial support for the Rust language.
  • Btrfs file system performance improvements.
  • Various Intel Arc graphics improvements.
  • More work for AMD RDNA3 GPUs.
  • Intel Meteor Lake Thunderbolt support.
  • Support for more sound systems.
  • Support for Xbox One Elite Controller paddles.
  • Better support of Nintendo clone controllers.
  • Initial DualSense Edge controller support
  • Lots more the list is very long.

For more in-depth info you can check out the usual Phoronix report and LWN Part 1 and Part 2 or wherever else you generally get your kernel news from. The full changelog is available over here.
