The current 2.6 kernel is 220.127.116.11
. Linus announced
the release of the 2.6.22 kernel on
July 8. For those just tuning in: much has happened in this
development cycle, including the addition of the mac80211 (formerly
"Devicescape") wireless networking stack, the eventfd system calls
, some new
TCP congestion control algorithms, a rewritten CFQ I/O scheduler, a new
IEEE1394 ("Firewire") stack, support for the Blackfin
long-awaited IVTV TV tuner driver, and much more. See the KernelNewbies 2.6.22
for vast amounts of detail, the long-format
for even more detail, or the
for a (relatively) concise listing of patches in
The 18.104.22.168 update, released
on July 10, adds an SCTP security fix which had somehow managed not to
get into 2.6.22.
The 2.6.23 merge window has opened, and some 500 patches have found their
way into the mainline git repository (as of this writing).
For older kernels: the 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199 stable updates were
released on July 6; each contains a single fix for a security problem
in the netfilter H323 connection tracking code.
