        Release Notes: A lot of improvements come with this version. There are improvements in the signaling system, in the terminal driver, and in the pipefs driver. There has been a big code restructuring and as always, a good number of bugs were fixed. The 0.7 branch will concentrate on the terminal driver, so don't expect many improvements in other parts of the kernel.
