Linux 4.7 lands


Linus Torvalds has loosed version 4.7 of the Linux kernel on an impatient world.

This time around the headline features include the addition of the schedutil cpufreq governor, code that makes it possible to change the frequency at which a CPU operates. There's also support for the new-ish Radeon RX 480 GPU and the ability to handle Microsoft's Xbox One Elite Controller.

Linux-on-telly fans will want to tune in to support for the LG1312 custom ARM kit that LG uses in its smart televisions, among other new ARM ships that gain support.

Changes to the EFI bootloader control should boost security.

Linus Torvalds has detailed all the changes here, in his LKML message announcing the release. ®
