Since few hours, Linux 3.3 Kernel has been released which comes with more new features including the integration of Android code and more networking features. As for Android code integration, this may render it possible to run Android apps on Linux-based systems as well as allowing developers to create custom Android ROMs. Among the other key features in Linux 3.3 Kernel we can find the following:

  • HDMI Audio Support For Radeon HD 5000 (Evergreen) Series
  • Fixes for ASPM power regression
  • Improved ACPI / Power Management, etc.
