This is the latest release candidate of Linux kernel 4.1.0 and contains a lot of new features.

A few highlights of the new features:

  • XenGT vGPU support
  • ACPI for 64-bit ARM
  • Radeon DisplayPort MST handling

Improvements include better Intel CPU/GPU performance for certain classes of chips and of course this release contains a lot of bug fixes.

Linux kernel 4.1.0 is planned to be released later this month, so probably there will another release candidate before the final release of 4.1.0.
