The current 2.6 development kernel is 2.6.25-rc3, released by Linus on
February 24. The patches applied this time are mostly fixes, but there is
also a new libata.force module parameter, a driver for ADT7473
hardware monitoring chips, a new PM_EVENT_HIBERNATE power
management state, a driver for Marvell 88SE6440 SAS/SATA controllers, and
file capabilities support for the SMACK security module. See the short-form changelog for details, or the
long-form changelog for lots of details.
A slow stream of fixes has been trickling into the mainline git repository
since the -rc3 release.
The current stable 2.6 kernel is 188.8.131.52, released on February 25
with a fair number of fixes. The 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11 stable updates were
released at the same time with smaller number of fixes; they are probably
the last updates in the 2.6.22 and 2.6.23 series.
For older kernels: 18.104.22.168 was released on
February 24; it fixes a bug introduced in 22.214.171.124 and adds a fix for
a relatively obscure security problem.
