The 2.6.33 kernel is out
[Kernel] Posted Feb 24, 2010 20:11 UTC (Wed) by corbet
At last, Linus has released the 2.6.33
kernel. "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.
The best place for information on new kernel releases is KernelNewbies,
and the KernelNewbies 2.6.33
page (which is working again) does not disappoint.
