Kernel release status

The 2.6.30 kernel is out, released by Linus on June 9. Some of the bigger changes in 2.6.30 include a number of filesystem improvements, the integrity measurement patches, the TOMOYO Linux security module, reliable datagram socket protocol support, object storage device support, the FS-Cache filesystem caching layer, the nilfs filesystem, threaded interrupt handler support, and much more. For more information, see the KernelNewbies 2.6.30 page, the long-format changelog, and LWN's statistics for this development cycle.

As of this writing, no changes have been merged for 2.6.31.

There have been no stable kernel updates in the last week. The update is in the review process (along with a 2.6.27 update), though, with an expected release on or after June 11.
