The 2.6.28 kernel is out released
on December 24. Some of the
highlights of this kernel are the addition of the GEM GPU memory manager
, the ext4 filesystem
is no longer "experimental", scalability improvements in memory management
via the reworked vmap()
and pageout scalability patches
, moving the -staging drivers
into the mainline,
and much more. See the excellent KernelNewbies
for lots more details about 2.6.28.
The current 2.6 stable kernel is 220.127.116.11 released on December 18 as well. It contains
nearly two dozen fixes of some fairly serious problems in 2.6.27.
