The 2.6.30 kernel is out,
released by Linus on June 9. Some of the bigger changes in
2.6.30 include a number of filesystem improvements, the integrity measurement patches,
the TOMOYO Linux security
module, reliable datagram
socket protocol support, object storage device support,
the FS-Cache filesystem caching layer, the nilfs filesystem, threaded interrupt handler
support, and much more. For more information, see the KernelNewbies 2.6.30
long-format changelog, and LWN's statistics for
this development cycle.
As of this writing, no changes have been merged for 2.6.31.
There have been no stable kernel updates in the last week. The
126.96.36.199 update is in the review
process (along with a 2.6.27 update),
though, with an expected release on or after June 11.
