The current development kernel is 2.6.33-rc4, released on January 12. There
have been 366 non-merge commits to Linus's tree since -rc4, mostly bug
fixes. One might expect an -rc5 soon, probably just after publication.
Stable updates: Three stable kernels were released on January 18: 184.108.40.206, 220.127.116.11 , and 18.104.22.168. Each has multiple fixes (22.214.171.124
includes 52 patches),
including some security issues. Greg Kroah-Hartman also released a status report on the stable
trees, which notes that there will almost certainly be no more 2.6.31
updates, that 2.6.27 is only viable for another 6-8 months, and that he
will be maintaining 2.6.32 as a "long-term" stable release.
