Linus Torvalds announced on Sunday that the latest version of Linux, Kernel 5.13, is launching with native support for Apple M1. 9To5Google notes that Linux has been testing a release candidate version for the past month, but now the official release finally has arrived, bringing early levels of support.

At the moment, it doesn’t appear that Linux Kernel 5.13 supports accelerated graphics, so there are still some advancements to be made in future updates. Torvalds says that, overall, 5.13 feels like a small update, however, it also happens to be one of the biggest 5.x releases, with over 16,000 commits (17,000, if you include merges).
