The current development kernel is 2.5.69
; there has not been a
development kernel release since May 4.
Linus's BitKeeper tree contains some framebuffer fixes, more annotations of
user-space pointers and makefile support for Linus's (still unreleased)
kernel source analyzer, 48-bit IDE addressing support, a (hopefully)
working IDE tagged command queueing implementation, the BIO "walking"
API, more devfs cleanups (devfs_register() is gone), the USB
"gadget" subsystem, a wireless networking update (and quite a bit of
networking work in general), dynamic block I/O request allocation, a fair
amount of SCSI cleanup work, a generic x86 subarchitecture, a number of TTY
layer cleanups, a USB update, an IA-64 update, and a vast number of other
The current stable kernel is 2.4.20; Marcelo released the second 2.4.21 release candidate on
May 8. This patch fixes the aic7xxx problems (though not entirely to
the satisfaction of the aic7xxx maintainer) and adds a fair number of other
to post comments)
