A handful of patches have been merged since 2.6.36-rc1; they include parts of the VFS scalability patch set by Nick Piggin. We'll take a closer look at those patches for next week's edition.
Stable updates: The 188.8.131.52, 184.108.40.206, 220.127.116.11, and 18.104.22.168 updates were released on August 13. Greg notes that the 2.6.34 updates are coming to an end, with only one more planned. There is another 2.6.27 update in the review process as of this writing; the future of 2.6.27 updates appears to be short as well, given that Greg can no longer boot such old kernels on any hardware in his possession.
