The 2.6.26 kernel is out
by Linus on July 13.
For those just tuning in, some of the bigger changes in 2.6.26 include PAT
support in the x86 architecture, read-only bind mounts, the KGDB debugger,
a lot of virtualization
work, and more. See the
KernelNewbies 2.6.26 page
for lots of details.
The 2.6.27 merge window has opened, with some 3000 changesets incorporated
as of this writing. See the separate article below for a summary of what
has been merged (so far) for the next development cycle.
The 18.104.22.168 stable kernel
update was released on July 13. It contains a single fix for a
locally-exploitable vulnerability (limited to x86_64 systems).
