    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.

    Linus Torvalds: Linux 5.12 is a small release but the next one is going to be bigger
    This latest update to the Linux kernel might be modest but includes some new features, and the next update is likely to be larger.
