Sub_title: Linux 3.15, expected to be released in mid-2014

New Linux version will reduce suspend and resume times
Intel, Nvidia, and AMD graphics updates are also in the cards.

Linux 3.15, expected to be released in mid-2014, "will feature a large number of ACPI and power management updates" and allow Linux-based computers to suspend and resume faster, Phoronix reported today.

"Visible to users with the Linux 3.15 kernel should be reduced time for system suspend and resuming, thanks to the enabling of more asynchronous threads," the article said, pointing to a list of changes posted by Rafael Wysocki, an Intel employee who maintains the Linux kernel's core power management code. Basic support for Nvidia's Maxwell architecture is also in the works for Linux 3.15.

The latest stable release of Linux was version 3.13.6. Linux 3.14 could be released in the coming days, with improved Intel Broadwell graphics support, updates to the open source Nvidia driver, enablement of dynamic power management for newer AMD Radeon graphics cards, support for Logitech's Dual Action Gamepad, and other upgrades.

Not quite the anniversary of the moon landing (20 July 1969), but "The Beagle has Landed" . Looking forward now to Puppy Next Gen Smile

Suspend to RAM and resume from suspend to ram are acceptable fast for me with the current kernels .

No long delay like 30 seconds or such ; 5-10 seconds and less it is for me .

Would rather expect bugs then -- because it is new code .

Suspend to DISK and resume from suspend to disk ( Hibernation ) was introduced with custom kernels by pemasu and 01micko I think ;
and I don't think many people use suspend to disk much here in Puppyland .

Current kernel-kit/configs_extra/ directory of woof-CE has 18 .configs ,
with 5 have
DOTconfig-3.1.10-slackoPAE:# CONFIG_HIBERNATION is not set
DOTconfig-3.12.21-FD324G:# CONFIG_HIBERNATION is not set
DOTconfig-3.12.21-FD64:# CONFIG_HIBERNATION is not set
DOTconfig-3.12.22-180614-tahr-PAE:# CONFIG_HIBERNATION is not set
DOTconfig-3.1-dpup:# CONFIG_HIBERNATION is not set

The others should HIBERNATE

I am not suspending much either . I shutdown 99 % of the times .
