The current 2.6 prepatch is 2.6.23-rc1
by Linus on
July 22. The 2.6.23 merge window is now closed. See the article
below for features merged since last week; for a complete view of what's in
2.6.23-rc1 see the short-form
or the full
if you have a lot of time.
Something over 100 patches have gone into the mainline repository since -rc1
as of this writing. They are mostly fixes, but there was also a patch
removing the request_queue_t typedef - though it was later
restored with a "deprecated" tag.
The current -mm tree is 2.6.23-rc1-mm1. This tree has
slimmed considerably as patches flowed into the mainline; other changes
include a set of IDE updates, the USB device authorization
patches, the Linux security
non-modules patch, a new file capabilities patch, some new ext4
features, and process-ID namespaces.
For older kernels: 18.104.22.168-rc1 was released on
July 23 - the first 2.6.16 update in a while.
22.214.171.124 was released on
July 22 with a couple of fixes. 2.4.35-rc1 is also out with a
larger set of fixes; the final 2.4.35 release should happen shortly.
