Linus Torvalds has released Linux Kernel 5.19.9. The most significant change is the inclusion of several updates to the LongArch architecture for CPUs from Chinese manufacturer Loongsan, which is based on MIPS64 and RISC-V. Otherwise, writes Torvalds, the new release brings “nothing really interesting”, just the usual updates, bug fixes and improvements. This affects, among other things, support for AMD Zen 4 CPUs.

emphasis is more interesting Torvalds’ post on the new kernelthat it was released on MacBooks running Asahi Linux – MacBook Airs with M2 processors, such as the makers of Asahi Linux added to twitter, Torvalds writes that he has been waiting a long time to be able to use ARM64 notebooks with Linux and hopes to be able to travel with the device in the near future.
With the release of Linux 5.19, the merge window for the next kernel version begins, with Torvalds accepting patches. The next kernel will probably have the version number 6.0 because “I’m worried about getting confused with very large numbers”.
