Linus Torvalds has released a third release-candidate for the upcoming v5.2 of the Linux kernel. Very little has changed since RC2 and all the bigger patches applied have been license comment cleanups.

Linus Torvalds has this to say about the release:

"Nothing particularly stands out.


Anyway, even ignoring the SPDX changes, there's just a lot of small fixes spread all over, not anything that looks particularly scary or worrisome. Maybe next week is when the other shoe drops, but maybe this will just be a nice calm release. That would be lovely."

Though there wasn't much new in rc2 and rc3 the 5.2 kernel itself has a lot of changes since 5.1 which were added earlier in the release-cycle. The final 5.2-release should be announced early next month.
