The Linux 4.7 kernel has been in development for the past two months, but that shouldn’t surprise anyone who is either reading our website on a regular basis or keeping pace with the Linux kernel development cycle, since it is quite normal for this branch. A total of seven Release Candidate (RC) testing builds have debuted since May 29, 2016, and they have introduced numerous new features and improvements.
The biggest new features of Linux kernel 4.7 are support for the recently announced Radeon RX 480 GPUs (Graphic Processing Units) from AMD, which, of course, has been implemented directly into the AMDGPU video driver, a brand new security module, called LoadPin, which makes sure the modules loaded by the kernel all originate from the same file system, and support for generating virtual USB Device Controllers in USB/IP.
