The current development kernel is 2.6.0-test5
; Linus has released no
kernels since September 8. It has been a relatively slow period for
kernel development in general.
Patches in Linus's BitKeeper repository include a Coda filesystem update,
some initramfs tweaks, improvements in random driver locking, the
removal of some ext3 debugging hooks, direct I/O support for reiserfs, some
CPU frequency work, an Intel SpeedStep-SMI driver, a substantial amount of
janitorial work, and various fixes.
The current stable kernel is 2.4.22. Marcelo released 2.4.23-pre4 on September 12; it includes
some VM improvements (including the removal of the much-maligned
out-of-memory killer), an ia-64 update, some NFS work, a wireless update,
and various other fixes.
