As per Linux Torvalds
So, as is hopefully clear to everybody, the major version number change is more about me running out of fingers and toes than it is bout any big fundamental changes.
But of course there’s a lot of various changes in 6.0 – we’ve got over 15k non-merge commits in there in total, after all, and as such 6.0 is one of the bigger releases at least in numbers of commits in a while.
What’s New in Kernel 6.0
- Support for NVMe in-band authentication
- Buffered writes on XFS file systems
- User-space memory management
- Raspberry Pi 4 V3D kernel driver
