Here we go again! Linus Torvalds just announced today the general availability for public testing of the first Release Candidate (RC) milestone of the upcoming Linux 5.12 kernel series.

The merge window that opened with the launch of the Linux 5.11 kernel series two weeks ago is now closed and Linus Torvalds published the first Release Candindate in the upcoming Linux kernel 5.12 series, giving us an early taste of the new features and improvements.
