UEK Release 6 is based on the mainline Linux kernel 5.4, supplying more innovation than other commercial Linux kernels: arm - enhanced support for the Arm (aarch64) platform, including improvements in the areas of security and virtualization; Cgroup v2 - UEK R6 includes all Cgroup v2 features, along with several enhancements; ktask - ktask is a framework for parallelizing CPU-intensive work in the kernel, it can be used to speed up large tasks on systems with available CPU power, where a task is single-threaded in user space; parallelized kswapd - page replacement is handled in the kernel asynchronously by kswapd, and synchronously by direct reclaim.” Please see the release announcement and the release notes for further information.
