The current 2.6 kernel is 2.6.14
on October 27. A
very small number of patches went in since 2.6.14-rc5. Major changes in
2.6.14 include a new version of the wireless extensions, the HostAP
system (which allows a Linux
system to function as a wireless access point), relayfs, the DCCP network protocol
, the filesystems in user space
, and more.
The first 2.6.15 prepatch has not yet been released, and may not be until
the window for new features closes. A major pile of patches has been
merged into the mainline git repository; see the separate article, below,
for a list of some of the more interesting ones.
There have been no -mm releases in the last week.
The current 2.4 prepatch is 2.4.32-rc2, released by Marcelo on
Halloween. It contains a small set of fixes, mostly in the networking
