The current development kernel is still 2.5.31
; Linus has not
released a development kernel (as of this writing) since August 10.
Linus has not been idle, however; his BitKeeper repository (which may well
be released as 2.5.32 by the time you read this) contains many
the top of the list, of course, is the replacement of the IDE subsystem.
Other stuff merged by Linus includes some NFS changes, the "scalable exit"
patch from Ingo Molnar (see below) along with his other thread support
improvements, an ACPI update, a set of page cache improvements from Andrew
Morton, a new MTRR driver, more device model work, a new RTC driver, and a
very long list of other fixes and updates.
The latest 2.5 status summary from Guillaume
Boissiere came out on August 20.
The current stable kernel is 2.4.19. Marcelo released 2.4.20-pre4 on August 19; the biggest
change in this prepatch is the addition of the JFS journaling filesystem.
The current prepatch from Alan Cox is 2.4.20-pre2-ac6. The "ac" series looks to be
the testing area for new IDE
patches for some time, and thus may be, at times, less stable than people
have come to expect.
