According to Linus Torvalds the official Linux 4.2 release should be released before the end of August, this year.

Linus Torvalds mentions in the Linux kernel mailing list; “We’re getting up there to the later rc’s, but it’s looking like 4.2 might be one of the releases needing more than the usual seven rc releases – things aren’t calming down like I would wish, and we’ve still had some fairly annoying issues pop up.” He continues “For example, there was a core VFS fix merged just yesterday – the bug itself was old, but some changes in this merge window ended up triggering it much more easily.”
