Linus Renames 2.6.40 Kernel To Linux 3.0, Announces Release Candidate 378

An anonymous reader writes "Linus just released the first -rc of the next kernel series, but rather than continuing development as the Linux 2.6.40 kernel, he has renamed it to be the Linux 3.0 kernel." And he's tacked on a second dot and another zero (3.0.0), at least for now, because many scripts expect and rely on a three-part kernel version.

Be careful when a loop exits to the same place from side and bottom.
