As a result, Linus Torvalds has chosen to call the release The Frozen Wilderness.

Linux lead developer Linus Torvalds has announced the first release of Linux 5.12 is now out just two weeks after Linux 5.11 was released.

But according to Linus Torvalds, the release was close to not getting rid of due to snowstorms that caused power outages in Texas and Portland for hundreds of thousands of people, reports Zdnet. Something that risks making up for it for a project that has over 1500 participants who have contributed tens of thousands of lines of code to change different hardware drivers for the Linux kernel.

But the release was off, and Linus Torvalds now pays tribute to all participants who managed to submit their contributions despite the prevailing circumstances. To mark it all, Linus Torvalds has also chosen to call the latest release of the core The Frozen Wasteland.

The latest version of the Linux kernel mainly offers large amounts of cleaning in the code and has, among other things, removed support for Oprofile, which is now an outdated system.
