The current development kernel is 2.5.44
, which was released
by Linus on October 18.
This one contains more
read-copy-update work, lots of filesystem and block driver patches from
Alexander Viro, a PowerPC64 update, the x86 BIOS enhanced disk drive patch,
some SCSI work, a lot of device model patches, and many other fixes and
updates. See the long-format changelog
for all the details.
After releasing 2.5.44, Linus headed off to cruise in the Caribbean; thus,
there are no new changes in his BitKeeper tree, and there will be no more
official development kernel releases until after the 27th.
The current development kernel prepatch from Alan Cox is 2.5.44-ac2. This one makes some more
wide-ranging changes, including the incorporation of interrupt stack
support, an updated LVM2, and numerous other fixes and updates.
The current 2.5 Kernel Status Summary from
Guillaume Boissiere is dated October 23.
The current stable kernel is 2.4.19; no 2.4.20 prepatches have been
released in the last week.
