With what seemed like weeks of testing by Linus Torvalds and various open-source collaborators around the world, the 4.10 version of the Linux Kernel has finally hit the stable branch.

Along the release highlights initial support for the Intel graphics stack native graphics to work in a guest operating system (such as virtualization via QEMU), TurboBoost 3.0 support for Intel Broadwell chipsets and higher, Nouveau boost support (AKA: The open-source NVIDIA driver alternative for Linux), and many other excited changes.

The Linux release can be viewed over at Phoronix.  The mailing list can be viewed here, although details are quite as sparse.

In the meantime, work will (or has), begun on the next release of the Linux Kernel: version 4.11. View the upcoming features and improvements over at this link.
