The current 2.6 development kernel is 2.6.28-rc4
on November 9.
"Nothing hugely exciting here. Various small fixes all over. There's
a delayed FAT update which includes some movement of files around, and
there's two fixes for some really long-standing problems (not really
regressions, but nasty bugs) in Unix domain file descriptor
" This release also contains a new Fujitsu MB862xx
framebuffer driver and the introduction of a new internal API for dealing
with CPU masks. See the
for all the details.
As of this writing, just over 200 fixes have been merged into the mainline
git repository since the 2.6.28-rc4 release.
The current stable 2.6 kernel is 22.214.171.124, released on November 7. It
contains a long list of fixes accompanied by a stronger-than-usual
encouragement to upgrade. The 126.96.36.199 update is in the review
process as of this writing; it will likely be released on November 14.
The 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206 stable kernel updates came out on
November 10. They both contain a long list of fixes, and both are
intended to be the last in the series. Users who are dependent on these
updates will want to consider moving to 2.6.27 in the near future.
