Linus Torvalds says: Crawl out from under the wrapping paper and go test Linux

Linus Torvalds wants testers to get stuck into the latest Linux kernel after publishing the second release candidate (rc2) of Linux 5.11 over the New Year weekend. Linux 5.11 rc2 comes barely a week after Torvalds released the first release candidate (rc1) on 27 December. In his release notes, the Linux founder acknowledged that “not a lot has happened” over the past couple of weeks as contributors enjoyed some downtime, though added that it was now time to “crawl out from under all the Xmas wrapping paper piles and go test.” 5.11 rc2 is tiny in comparison to rc1, Torvalds explained, which included a “huge dump of AMD GPU descriptor header files” that account for around two-thirds of the entire update.
