The current stable 2.6 kernel is 2.6.24
by Linus on
January 24. 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.
The 2.6.25 merge window is open, but the process of picking up patches is
going relatively slowly due to the distractions of linux.conf.au. See the
article below for a summary of what has been merged to date.
For older kernels: 18.104.22.168 was released on
January 27 with about a dozen fixes.
