The 2.6.33 kernel is out
on February 24.
The most noticeable features in 2.6.33 are likely the Nouveau and
DRBD integration (and a _lot_ more people will notice the Nouveau
part of that). And the Radeon KMS parts aren't considered
experimental any more. Oh, and the AS IO scheduler is gone, since
keeping it around and just causing confusion seemed to not be worth
it any more. You're supposed to use CFQ instead.
Other interesting stuff
in 2.6.33 includes dynamic
tracing, the block I/O
bandwidth controller, and the compressed cache mechanism.
See the KernelNewbies 2.6.33
page for more information on this release.
The current stable kernel is 126.96.36.199, released on February 23.
There are 93 fixes in this update, many of which are security-related. See
below for our detailed look at this release.
