Today, April 12 is a big day for all fans of the Open Source movement, as Linus Torvalds had the pleasure of announcing the immediate availability for download of the highly anticipated Linux kernel 4.0.

Besides the new version number, Linux kernel 4.0 is finally allows no-reboot patching, adds new drivers and updates existing ones, brings better support for new hardware components, and includes several other interesting features, but not as much as one might have expected.

Live patching is a feature that is already integrated with the SUSE Enterprise Linux operating system and lets users update the kernel packages without having to reboot the system.

“Feature-wise, 4.0 doesn’t have all that much special, says Linus Torvalds. “Much have been made of the new kernel patching infrastructure, but realistically, that not only wasn’t the reason for the version number change, we’ve had much bigger changes in other versions”

Linux kernel 4.1 will be a bigger release with more features

According to Mr. Torlvads, Linux kernel 4.0 is not a major release, except for the big version change, and that the upcoming Linux 4.1 kernel will be the actual “bigger release” with more attractive features.

Download Linux kernel 4.0 right now via Softpedia or directly from the kernel.org website. For more information about the new features, updated drivers, and other changes implemented in Linux 4.0 kernel, we suggest reading Linus Torlvads’ mailinglist announcement.
