And a lot of other new features…
Here’s an extract of the news posting from Linus Torvalds.
“So after a *very* quiet week after the 4.1-rc8 release, the final 4.1
release is now out.
Anyway, since rc8 we’ve had truly small changes, mainly some final
driver fixups (HDA sound, drm, scsi target, crypto) and a couple of
small misc fixes.”
