The current stable 2.6 release is 126.96.36.199
on September 16.
The current 2.6 prepatch is 2.6.14-rc2, released by Linus on
September 19. "Not a whole lot o' excitement, ye scurvy dogs,
but it has t' ALSA, LSM, audit and watchdog merges that be missed from
-rc1, and a merge series with Andrew." Some specific additions
which came in after -rc1 include a new virtual filesystem for security
modules, some DCCP additions, a number of audit subsystem patches, some
netfilter enhancements, and an ALSA update. See the long-format changelog for the details.
Linus's git repository currently contains a SCSI update, some netfilter patches, an InfiniBand update, and various fixes.
The current -mm tree is 2.6.14-rc1-mm1. Recent changes
to -mm include per-task write throttling, a conversion of the input
subsystem to sysfs (includes some driver model changes which will need
reworking prior to merging), a big reiser4 update meant to address various
review comments, the removal of the perfctr patches (the maintainer is moving
on and recommending perfmon instead), and some page allocator tweaks.
