The current development kernel is 2.5.32
by Linus on August 27. It
includes, of course, the IDE code replacement (see last week's LWN Front
pages). In this (large) patch you'll also find the asynchronous I/O core
(covered in the August 1 LWN Kernel
), a bunch more device model work, IA-64 and PPC64 updates, the
beginning of the NFSv4 merge, a bunch of input layer changes, Ingo Molnar's
thread performance work, and an incredible number of other fixes and
updates. The long-format changelog
is also available.
Linus's current BitKeeper tree, which will become 2.5.33, contains a number
of memory management performance fixes from Andrew Morton, some partition
and IDE work by Alexander Viro, a set of network driver improvements, and a
big pile of typo and designated initializer fixes.
The current 2.5 status summary from Guillaume
Boissiere is dated August 28.
The current stable kernel is 2.4.19; Marcelo has released no
2.4.20 prepatches over the last week.
The current prepatch from Alan Cox is 2.4.20-pre4-ac2. The -ac series is now the
staging area for ongoing IDE work which, by most accounts, is going well.
