By corbet The 4.11 kernel has been released.
“So after that extra week with an rc8, things were pretty calm, and I’m
much happier releasing a final 4.11 now.”
Some headline features in 4.11 include:
a new perf ftrace command
restarting the work of better integrating the perf and ftrace subsystems,
I/O scheduling support for the multiqueue block subsystem,
journaling for device-mapper RAID 4/5/6 volumes,
some swapping scalability improvements,
a new LZ4 compression implementation,
the new statx() system call,
and more. As always, see the KernelNewbies 4.11 page
for lots of details.
