The GNU C Library (GLIBC) is a part of almost all Linux systems deployed today. The library continues to be a key piece of the low-level interface between user applications and the Linux kernel, and as such an important enabler for new hardware, kernel features, and new system-wide APIs.

This talk will cover the work by the community to add support for new features including Intel MPX support, lock elision for s390 and s390x, optimizations for ARMv7 and ARMv8, and file description locking support for the same Linux kernel feature.
