The current development kernel is 2.6.0-test11
; there has been no
development kernel release since November 26. Linus continues to
accumulate small, critical patches in his BitKeeper repository, but appears
to be waiting for Andrew Morton to return to the scene for the preparation
of the next release, be it another -test kernel or the real 2.6.0.
Andrew did release 2.6.0-test11-mm1 on
December 17. The -mm tree now contains a full 300 patches, ranging
from small fixes to new drivers and major subsystem work. Andrew has
indicated that at least some of the patches in -mm will find their way into
the mainline after 2.6.0 comes out.
The current stable kernel is 2.4.23; Marcelo has not released any
2.4.24 prepatches since 2.4.24-pre1 on
