The current development kernel is 2.5.64
, which was released
by Linus on March 4. Changes in
2.5.64 include a
dentry cache performance improvement, code for finding "jiffy wraps," an
ACPI update, some new CPU frequency control code, USB updates, several
kbuild fixes, a number of sysfs tweaks, some module fixes, and, of course,
a great many spelling fixes. The long-format
has the details, as usual.
As of this writing, Linus's BitKeeper tree includes only some timekeeping
fixes and some SBUS frame buffer patches.
The current stable kernel is 2.4.20. Marcelo released the fifth 2.4.21 prepatch on
February 27; it includes some architecture updates, some IDE fixes,
fixes for the ethernet information leakage vulnerability, a JFS update,
and, of course, lots of other repairs.
Alan Cox released 2.2.24 on March 5.
There is, of course, no active development happening with 2.2, so this
release consists of fixes only - in particular, it includes fixes for the
ethernet information leakage vulnerability.
