Submission + - Linux 3.8-rc5 Released, Quietly (

hypnosec writes: Rather than the usual mailing list announcement for Linux kernel release Linus Torvalds has released Linux 3.8-rc5 quietly. With no announcement prior to release and even a day after the Linux 3.8-rc5 was tagged, Torvalds went onto post a message on Google+ about the release earlier today, The latest release candidate contains over 300 commits; has updates in btrfs, f2fs, ptrace and module loading and comes with quite a few driver updates.
