Linux kernel 6.2 is out now, here's a feature highlight

By - | Views: 24,044

You can have a little Linux kernel update, as a treat. The Linux kernel 6.2 is officially out now so here's some notes on some of what's new. In the release announcement Linus Torvalds requested people to "please do give 6.2 a testing" and that it may not be a "sexy LTS release like 6.1 ended up being, but all those regular pedestrian kernels want some test love too".

Some of what's new and improved includes:

  • Intel Arc Graphics improvements.
  • Optional Splitlock changes to help gaming.
  • Initial NVIDIA Ampere (RTX 30) support in nouveau.
  • Various work and drivers for Wi-Fi 7 support.
  • Improvements to Sony controller support like DualShock 4 and DualSense.
  • OneXPlayer mini (AMD) and AOK ZOE A1 sensor support.
  • Btrfs file system performance improvements.
  • Various exFAT file system improvements.
  • More work on Apple Apple M1 Pro / Ultra / Max support.
  • Power management improvements for Alder Lake N and Raptor Lake P.
  • Performance improvement for Intel Skylake.
  • A driver for the ChromeOS human presence sensor.

The full changelog is available over here and as usual Phoronix does a nice overview.
