The current stable 2.6 release is 184.108.40.206
, which was released
on May 11. It
contains a fix for the ELF loader vulnerability
and a couple
of other fixes as well.
The current 2.6 prepatch is 2.6.12-rc4, announced by Linus on
May 6. Changes this time around include more "sparse" annotations, a
CIFS update, various architecture updates, resource limits for niceness and
realtime scheduling (covered in last week's
Kernel Page), a JFS update, some networking tweaks, and more. See the long-format changelog for the details.
Linus is currently on vacation, so no new patches have been added to his
git repository since -rc4.
The latest -mm release is 2.6.12-rc3-mm3.
Recent changes to -mm include a rework of the huge page code, a bunch of
UML updates, a device mapper update, and more fixes.
