by Linus on
March 12. It has the usual set of fixes, and the patch rate does seem
to be slowing down. "In fact, it seems to be stabilizing to the
point where I'm hoping that we're approaching a final 2.6.29, and this
might be the last -rc. We'll have to see.
" The short-form changelog
is in the announcement, or see the
for all the details.
As of this writing, nearly 200 changesets have been merged since

for the "Dave" Ethernet controller found on the Qong Board FPGA.
The current stable 2.6 kernel is 184.108.40.206, released on March 16; the
220.127.116.11 update was released
at the same time. Both contain an even longer than usual list of important
