    Linux 3.4 has been released just two months after Linus Torvalds posted the last version of the open source Linux kernel, with the distribution now supporting new graphics processors from Nvidia and Intel, improved file system functionality and a new security module.

    Torvalds, who oversees input from thousands of programmers, commented on how smoothly work on this release proceeded.

    "I think the 3.4 release cycle as a whole has been fairly calm. Sure, I always wish for the release candidates to calm down more quickly than they ever seem to do, but I think on the whole we didn't have any big disruptive events, which is just how I like it," he said. "Let's hope the 3.5 merge window is a calm one too."
