Linux 5.11 is out with AMD and Intel improvements (and Linus Torvalds is happy)

Linux kernel creator Linus Torvalds has announced availability of the Linux kernel version 5.11, marking the first stable kernel release for 2021. The version arrived on Sunday’s Valentine’s Day with only a small amount of changes from the previous seventh release candidate (RC). It’s been in development since before December and brings support for Intel’s Software Guard Extensions (SGX), a hardware-isolated trusted execution environment for applications to store and process secrets in enclaves.
