As mentioned last week, -rc8 was the last -rc, and there really isn't any point in delaying the real release any more. I'm sure we've missed something, and I know we have some regressions pending. At the same time, we do need the coverage of a eral release, and on the whole it looks pretty good. We've fixed a few regressions in the last few days, and there's always 2.6.30.x. The appended shortlog from 2.6.29-rc8 is not very interesting, but it's about as good as it gets. Not a lot of changes (just 72 non-merges, according to git rev-list), and most of those are pretty small and trivial. We're talking mostly one-liners, with just a couple of them standing out (in fact, just mainly the DPMS handling cleanup in drm_crtc_helper.c) As to the whole set of changes since 2.6.29, the best place to look is probably just http://kernelnewbies.org/Linux_2_6_30 as usual. One thing that doesn't seem to be mentioned there is that we're hopefully now done with the suspend/resume irq re-architecting, and have switched to a new world order. Although I suspect lots of details will still change, of course. And as usual, I'll wait a day or two before really opening the merge window. I want people to actually test this one rather than immediately sending me "please pull" requests. Deal? Linus --- Adam Jackson (1): drm: ignore EDID with really tiny modes.
