    It's probably not worth to post here about release candidates, because usually there are around 7 rc published before final kernel release. It means that 5.10 is expected to be released around mid-December.
    Anyway Linux 5.10 will be interesting release for consumers, because there are improvements for hibernation, ext4 filesystem performance in some use-cases and even memory allocation for GPUs. Linux 5.10 will be a LTS release.

    There were some important fixes for Device Mapper, F2FS allowing creating files with the same name in same directory in 5.10.1 - 5.10.3. I even saw some claims about 5.10.1 corrupting file F2FS systems. I still stick to 5.9.* series until things get tested in downstream distributions and everything settle down.
    Anyway Con Kolivas released updated MuQSS patchset for 5.10 Linux kernel.
