At long last, Linus has released
the 2.6.24 kernel.
Highlights of this release include control groups (formerly process containers
), the i386/x86_64 architecture merger
in the CFS
scheduler, network and PID
, the removal of the
modular security interface
, and much more. See LWN's list of merged patches
more detail, or the always-amazing KernelNewbies Linux Changes
for much more detail.
Linus also notes that he's about to head
south for linux.conf.au, but that he plans to open the 2.6.25 merge window
as usual. The next development cycle will probably start a bit more slowly
than it normally would, though.
