Kernel release status

The current stable 2.6 kernel is, which was announced on July 15.

The current 2.6 prepatch remains 2.6.13-rc3; a small number of fixes have accumulated in Linus's git repository since -rc3 came out. Since Linus and many key developers are in Ottawa for the kernel summit (see below) and the Ottawa Linux Symposium, activity has been relatively subdued.

The current -mm kernel is 2.6.13-rc3-mm1. Recent changes to -mm include the addition of the class-based kernel resource management (CKRM) patches, a number of fixes, and a set of patches marked "Futz with header files, waste much time."

Since your editor is in Ottawa as well, the Kernel Page will be relatively small this week. It will return to normal next week. Meanwhile, the slides from the "2.6 Kernel Roadmap" OLS talk have been posted for the curious.

Seconded - a brilliant, succinct overview of everything that's happening in kernel land at the moment. Thanks, Jon!
