The current 2.6 prepatch is 2.6.12-rc2
by Linus on April 4. Changes
this time include a number of architecture updates, an XFS update, some
netpoll improvements, a big USB update, an ALSA update, a number of
networking tweaks, and lots of fixes. Says Linus: "This is also the
point where I ask people to calm down, and not send me anything but clear
bug-fixes etc. We're definitely well into -rc land. So keep it quiet out
" The long-format changelog
has the details.
No patches have been merged into Linus's BitKeeper repository since the
-rc2 release. Given recent events, one should not expect more patches to
end up there anytime soon.
The current -mm tree is 2.6.12-rc2-mm1. Recent changes
to -mm include a new version of the crash dump code, a reiser4 update, a
patch optionally removing all BUG() and printk() calls
(shrinks the kernel but with significant side effects), an InfiniBand
update, some scheduler tweaks, and various fixes.
The current 2.4 kernel is 2.4.30, which was released by Marcelo (with no changes from
-rc4) on April 3.
