The current stable 2.6 release is 188.8.131.52
was released on
April 7 with a fair number of fixes; 184.108.40.206
- each containing a
single security fix - both came out on April 11, and 220.127.116.11
, with a pair of x86-64
fixes, was released on April 12.
The current 2.6 prepatch remains 2.6.17-rc1; no prepatches have been
released over the last week. 2.6.17-rc2 would appear to be imminent,
however, and may be out by the time you read this.
The patches merged since 2.6.17-rc1 are mostly fixes, but there are a few
more substantive changes, including a simplified form of the scheduler starvation avoidance
patch, some tweaks to the memory overcommit algorithm, the removal of
the obsolete blkmtd driver, the removal of the unmaintained Sangoma WAN
drivers, and a new "kernel internal pipe" object (and other changes) for the
splice() system call.
The current -mm tree is 2.6.17-rc1-mm2. Recent changes to
-mm include a new set of patches for 64-bit resource tracking and some core
dump code tweaks.
