The current development kernel is 2.6.38-rc6
on February 21. Linus
Diff-wise, the most noticeable thing here is removal of the /proc
interface from the target code (so that we don't make a release with
deprecated interfaces). But ignoring that (and some arm mach/map.h
cleanup patches), the diffs really are pretty small.
But what is probably actually noticeable is a lot of small fixups,
mostly in drivers. Nothing really exciting, I'm afraid. Or not afraid,
since excitement at this stage in the -rc series is a bad thing.
The short-form changelog is in the announcement, or see the
full changelog for the details.
Stable updates: the 126.96.36.199, 188.8.131.52, and 184.108.40.206 stable kernels were released on
February 17. They contain lots of
fixes all over the tree. Also, this will be the last of the 2.6.36.x
stable kernels: "[...] you should move to the .37 kernel series as this is
the last .36 kernel to be released. It's now 'end of life', 'dead',
'buried', 'pining for the fjords', or whatever term you and your
company uses for things that are no more."
The 220.127.116.11 update is in the review
process as of this writing. It contains 70 fixes, and should be released
on or after February 24.
