The current development kernel is 2.5.46
, which was released
by Linus on November 4. It
includes uClinux (a port of the kernel to systems with no memory management
unit), the "huge TLB" filesystem for working with large pages, more driver
model work, the latest sys_epoll implementation, a big m68k update, the
beginning of initramfs support (see below), an ARM update, extended
attributes and some online resizing support for the ext2 and ext3
filesystems, and numerous other patches. The the long-format changelog
has the details.
Linus has taken a break (from kernel development, anyway) since releasing
2.5.46; his BitKeeper tree is almost empty.
The current prepatch from Alan Cox is 2.5.45-ac1; it adds a number of fixes and backs
out some "dangerous looking" SCSI driver changes.
The latest 2.5 status summary from Guillaume
Boissiere is dated November 4.
Dave Jones has posted version 0.10 of his
"post-Halloween" 2.5 kernel document.
The current stable kernel is 2.4.19; there have been no 2.4.20
prepatches released over the last week.
