The current 2.6 release remains 2.6.13
; the first 2.6.14 prepatch
has not yet been released. According to Andrew
Morton's September 5 kernel status report
, there is quite a bit of
stuff yet to be merged, so we may not see 2.6.14-rc1 for a few more days.
That prepatch is already taking shape in Linus's git repository, however.
Merged patches include
wireless extensions v19, relayfs,
the ipw2100 and ipw2200 wireless network drivers,
the hostap driver (which allows a suitably equipped system to function as a
wireless access point), a number of swap file improvements, a new set of
sparse memory support patches (preparing the kernel for memory hotplug), a
number of kernel build system improvements, a klist API change (see below),
a large InfiniBand update (with a shared receive queue implementation), a
PHY abstraction layer for ethernet drivers, a serial ATA update, four-level
page table support for the ppc64 architecture, some sk_buff structure
shrinking patches, a big netfilter update (including netlink interface to a
number of netfilter internals and a user-space packet logging capability),
a new linked list primitive, a DCCP implementation (see last week's Kernel Page), and
The current -mm release is 2.6.13-mm1. Recent changes to
-mm include a big TTY layer buffering rewrite, an IBM accelerometer driver,
and a number of architecture updates.
