The current development kernel is 2.6.33-rc3
on January 5.
The bulk of the patches are some SH defconfig updates
(40%), but ignoring those we have the normal 'half drivers, half everything
else' pattern. On the driver front, the perhaps most notable change is not
so much a code change, but the small change of marking the "new" firewire
stack as being the recommended one.
The short-form changelog is in
the announcement, or see the
full changelog for the details.
2.6.33-rc2 was released on
December 24. It included a number of fixes, the Nouveau "ctxprogs"
generator for nv40 chipsets, and a Silicon Motion sm712 video card driver;
this release also saw the removal of the unused and abandoned distributed storage subsystem.
Full details are in the
Stable updates: the 220.127.116.11, 18.104.22.168, and 22.214.171.124 stable kernel updates were
released on January 6. All three contain a mixture of fixes;
126.96.36.199 is relatively small while
the other two are large. Updates for 2.6.31 probably end with 188.8.131.52.
