The current 2.6 kernel is still 2.6.7
; it has been almost a month
since that release (which happened on June 15) and no 2.6.8 prepatches have
yet come out.
Linus's BitKeeper tree continues to grow, though at a slower rate. Recent
additions include a new, faster scrolling mode for framebuffer consoles, a
serial ATA update, various architecture updates, many fixes for a new
series of locking bugs reported by the
Stanford checker, a fix for a /proc permissions bug (see below),
and lots of fixes.
The current tree from Andrew Morton is 2.6.7-mm6. Recent additions to -mm include
packet writing support for DVD-RW and CD-RW drives, a new set of scheduler
tweaks, an IDE update and various fixes.
The current 2.4 prepatch is 2.4.27-rc3, which was released by Marcelo on July 3. Very few
patches were added this time around; things would appear to be stabilizing
toward the 2.4.27-final release.
