The current development kernel is 2.6.0-test7
; there have been no
development kernel releases in the last week.
Linus's BitKeeper tree does contain a pile of patches, most of which are
stability fixes as one would expect. It also includes a (controversial)
patch to allow kernel threads to handle signals properly, a fix for a
possible interrupt handling deadlock, and a workaround for the AMD Opteron
The current stable kernel is 2.4.22. Marcelo released 2.4.23-pre7 on October 9; it includes
Jens Axboe's laptop mode patch, a new MegaRAID driver, BIOS enhanced disk
detection support, USB gadget support, and various other fixes and
updates. The plan is apparently to get the first release candidate out
within a month.
