Tom’s Hardware: Linus Torvalds has officially released version 3.2 of the Linux kernel. In the announcement, he wrote, “So we do have a few last-minute reverts and small fixes. Still, there’s not a whole lot of changes since -rc7 (shortlog appended), and almost all of them are *tiny*. So despite the few annoying last-minute reverts, I’m feeling pretty happy about it.”
Notable changes in the release of the open source operating system include support for the power saving technology in Intel’s Ivy Bridge CPUs and GPUs, better support for Nvidia GPUs, filesystem improvements, more WLAN drivers and various performance improvements.
