Linus Torvalds, the creator of Linux, has announced the release of Linux 4.15 is not yet final, so he is releasing it as rc9. The update includes: arch updates and drives as well as some core networking.

“I really really wanted to just release 4.15 today, but things haven’t calmed down enough for me to feel comfy about it,” Torvalds wrote in a message. “So I’m doing an rc9 instead. I don’t particularly like to, but I like it even less releasing something that doesn’t seem baked enough.”
