The current 2.6 prepatch is 2.6.24-rc1
by Linus on
October 23. As Linus noted
when tagging the release:
The patch is big. Really big. You just won't believe how vastly
hugely mindbogglingly big it is. I mean you may think it's a long
way down the road to the chemist, but that's just peanuts to how
big the patch from 2.6.23 is.
See the article below for this week's update on what was merged before the
window closed. There's also the short-form
changelog for a list of patches or the
long changelog for all the details.
As of this writing, no patches have been merged into the mainline git
repository since the -rc1 release. There have also been no -mm releases
over the last week.
For older kernels: 126.96.36.199 was released on
October 17 with a few dozen patches including a couple of security
fixes. 188.8.131.52-rc1 came
out on October 20; it has a dozen or so patches, again with a couple
of security fixes.
