The current 2.6 development kernel is 2.6.27-rc2
on August 5.
There's a lot of changes here, many of which are fixes or include file
reorganizations (architecture-specific include files are moving from
), but there's also a
driver for the SGI "GRU" system management device, support for the MIPS
architecture in the common kgdb debugger, a new subsystem for the
management of voltage and current regulators, some core memory management
and VFS locking changes, a driver for the SPI master controller on Orion
chips, and the removal of the long-deprecated cli()
functions. See the short-form
for details, or the
for lots of details.
As of this writing, no changesets have been merged into the mainline
repository since the 2.6.27-rc2 release.
The current -mm tree is 2.6.27-rc1-mm1. Recent changes
to -mm consist mainly of a large reduction in size as hundreds of patches
flow into the mainline.
The current stable 2.6 kernel is 220.127.116.11, released on August 6. It
contains a large set of fixes for a wide variety of problems. Previously,
18.104.22.168 (also a large set of
fixes) was released on August 1.
For 2.6.25 users: 22.214.171.124
(August 1) and 126.96.36.199
(August 6) continue the series of fixes for that kernel release.
