have been released since January 16.
Linus is back from his travels, and has merged some 300 patches (as of this

The current stable kernel is 2.4.20; there have been no 2.4.21
prepatches from Marcelo in the last week.
Alan Cox has released a couple of patches, the most recent being 2.4.21-pre4-ac2. Quite a bit of IDE work has
been going on, and this patch should be handled carefully. (Indeed, there
have been some reports of IDE-related deadlocks with the -ac2 patch).
