The release of the Linux 4.9 will bring a range of new features to operating systems based on Linux.

“I’m pretty sure this is the biggest release we’ve ever had, at least in number of commits,” said Linux kernel founder Linus Torvalds, in a post announcing the mammoth release, which spans more than 22 million lines of code.
