The current 2.6 development kernel is 2.6.27-rc4
on August 20.
Along with lots of fixes, it includes support for the multitouch trackpad
on new Apple laptops, more reshuffling of architecture-specific include
files, a number of XFS improvements, interrupt stacks for the SPARC64
architecture, the removal of the obsolete Auerswald USB sound driver, and
new drivers for TI TUSB 6010 USB controllers, Inventra HDRC USB
controllers, and National Semiconductor adcxx8sxxx analog-to-digital
converters. The short-form changelog is in the announcement, or see the
for all the details.
Patches continue to accumulate in the mainline repository, and 2.6.27-rc5
may be released by the time you read this. Along with the fixes, -rc5 will
include Japanese translations of more kernel documents and generic interrupt
handling for some UIO devices.
