The current 2.6 release is 2.6.2-rc2
, which Linus announced
on January 25. Changes since -rc1 include a number of architecture updates, an
IrDA update, and various fixes. See the
for the details.
The latest patch set from Andrew Morton is 2.6.2-rc2-mm1. Changes in recent -mm kernels
include compilation fixes for gcc 3.5, more scheduler tweaks, a new
"_relaxed" API for unordered I/O memory accesses, some code for finding
dangerous sleep_on() calls (see below), x86_64 kgdb support, and
many other fixes.
The current 2.4 kernel is 2.4.24; Marcelo released 2.4.25-pre7, which includes a set of architecture and
filesystem updates, on January 23. Marcelo also notes that 2.4
development will not freeze before 2.4.27; there is already a set of
important patches that will need to go into 2.4.26.
