Linux KernelThe Beta 1 Saucy Salamander snapshot includes the 18.104.22.168 Ubuntu Linux kernel which is based on the the upstream v3.11-rc7 Linux kernel. The 3.11 release contains support for KVM and Xen virtualization on 64-bit ARM (AArch64) hardware. There has also been significant progress on making PCI support not be tied to SoC-specific code but to make PCI host controller drivers for ARM work as loadable kernel modules.
