Linux 5.6-rc3

Filed under
Linux

Fairly normal rc3 as far as I can tell. We've seen bigger, but we've
seen smaller ones too. Maybe this is slightly on the low side of
average at this time, which would make sense since this was a smaller
merge window. Anyway, too much noise in the signal to be sure either
way.

The overall stats look fairly regular too: about 55% drivers (staging,
sound, gpu, networking,  and usb look noticeable, with some noise
elsewhere). The bulk of the staging diff is actually the vsoc removal,
so that's nice.

Outside of drivers, we have the usual suspects: arch fixes (powerpc,
s390, x86, but also a late csky update that I couldn't find it in
myself to worry about). Filesystems (ext4 and btrfs) and networking.
And misc sprinkles of small fixes elsewhere.

See the appended shortlog for details,

  • Linux Kernel 5.6-rc3 Releases Officially by Linus Torvalds!!

    Kernel 5.6-re3 releases:“ Linux Torvalds said, ‘Linux Kernel 5.6-rc3 will be released soon.’” Linux Kernel is an open-source UNIX based operating system for all the computers. Each and every part of Linux distributions is made up of Linux Kernel. Every major open-source system such as Servers, Desktops, TV, smartphones, Watch, Distro is using the Linux Kernel as the base. The Linux Kernel is basically developed by Linus Torvalds in the year of 1991 for his personal computer. But later now, it has been developed into an operating system that attracted many developers all around the world.

    The 5.6-rc3 kernel prepatch is out for testing. Linus says: "Fairly normal rc3 as far as I can tell. We've seen bigger, but we've seen smaller ones too.

  • Talk Python to Me: #259 From Academia to Tech Industry and Python

    Did you come to Python from the academic side of the world? Maybe got into working with code for research or lab work and found you liked coding more than your first field of study. Whatever the reason, many people make the transition from the academic world over to tech and industry. On this episode, you'll meet three women who have made this transition, and you'll hear their stories. I'm excited to speak with Jennifer Stark, Kaylea Haynes, and Eslene Bikoumou about their journey to the tech field.

PySpark blends the powerful Spark big data processing engine with the Python programming language to provide a data analysis platform that can scale up for nearly any task. Johnathan Rioux, author of "PySpark in Action", joins the show and gives us a great introduction of Spark and PySpark to help us decide how to get started and decide whether or not to decide if Spark and PySpark are right you.

  • Temporary Contact Number based Contact Tracing

    I have already talked here before about privacy preserving contact tracing to fight Covid-19 but I figured I give an update to this. I have spent the last week now investigating different approaches to this and my view has changed quite a bit. I strongly believe that contact tracing through phone apps is one of our best chances to return to normal and without losing our civil liberties. If you want to understand why, have a look at previous post about this topic. [...] If your local government is planning on implementing a covid tracing app it might be worth directing them towards Co-Epi. It already has an implementation of many of the same ideas in their GitHub repository. If they do want a centralized approach the Singaporean government Open Sourced their application under GPL3 under the name BlueTrace. It avoids largely unnecessary cloud infrastructure from what I can tell.
