The current development kernel is 2.6.0-test8
, which was released
by Linus on October 17. This patch
includes a working NFS direct I/O implementation, a workaround for the
Athlon prefetch bug, various architecture updates, working signal handling
for kernel threads, an ALSA update, some software suspend work, and
numerous other fixes. The long-format
has the details.
Linus's BitKeeper repository is full of stability fixes, as is appropriate
for his current goal of getting 2.6.0 in shape. It also includes an SGI
Altix serial console driver and Jeff Garzik's libata driver (covered here last August).
The current stable kernel is 2.4.22; Marcelo has not released any
2.4.23 prepatches since 2.4.23-pre7 on
