Linux Kernel 3.15 RC8 Released

Linux Kernel 3.15 RC8 had just been released, with just a week left before the official release is made available. In light of this release, Linux have also opened the merge window for Linux 3.16 a week early.

Reason for release according to Linus Torvalds, “I was really hoping that rc7 would be the last rc, but it appears that reality is once against conspiring against my well-laid plans, and is forcing me to do an rc8. It’s not like there were a lot of changes, but the last-minute dcache fixes in particular made it not really sane to just make a final release without another week of testing.
