The current 2.6 kernel is 2.6.20
by Linus on
February 4, otherwise known as Super Kernel Sunday. There's a bunch
of new stuff in 2.6.20, including paravirt_ops and KVM
, lots of
new drivers (including your editor's OLPC camera controller driver), the UDP-Lite
protocol, Playstation 3 support, and more. See the short-form changelog
for details, the long-format
for more details, the LWN
2.6 API changes page
for a summary of internal API differences, or the
KernelNewbies Linux Changes
for lots more information.
The patches for the 2.6.21 merge have just begun to find their way into the
mainline git repository as of this writing. A number of architecture
updates have been merged, along with a GFS2 patch set.
There have been no -mm tree releases over the last week.
For older kernels: 22.214.171.124 was released on
February 5. It contains quite a long list of fixes. The -stable team
had originally intended not to release any more 2.6.18 updates. It seems
that there are some fixes for that kernel which are worth distributing,
however, so one more 2.6.18.x release can be expected in the near future.
Adrian Bunk has released 126.96.36.199-rc1 with a relatively
small number of fixes.
For 2.4 users, Willy Tarreau has released 188.8.131.52 with only three
