The current development kernel is 3.8-rc4
on January 17. Linus was "late"
a day in releasing it, which sent him on a mission to figure out which day
was the most common for releases (Sunday). "Anyway, with that
digression, I can happily report that -rc4 is smaller than -rc3 despite the
extra day, although not by much. There's not really a whole lot that stands
out: apart from one new wireless driver (the Atheros Wilocity driver) and
some OMAP drm changes, the diffstat looks pretty flat and spread out. Which
just means lots of small changes all over.
Stable updates were not in short supply this week.
184.108.40.206 were all released on
January 17; the 220.127.116.11 announcement carried a warning that updates
for this kernel will cease in the near future.
3.7.4, 3.4.27 and 3.0.60 were released on January 21.
