Linus Torvalds has officially released Linux 4.7, the fourth update for the open source operating system this year. Key new features in the release include the LoadPin Linux Security Module and the schedutil cpu frequency scaling governor.

In his note announcing the release, Torvalds noted that "the final patch wasn't all that big, and much of it is trivial one- and few-liners." He added, "Obviously, this means that the merge window for 4.8 is open. Judging by the linux-next contents, that's going to be a bigger release than the current one (4.7 really was fairly calm, I blame at least partly summer in the northern hemisphere)."
