Kernel release status

The 3.3 kernel was released on March 18, so there is no development kernel as of this writing. Some of the headline features in the 3.3 release include the byte queue limits infrastructure, Open vSwitch, the return of much of the Android code to the staging tree, C6X architecture support, large physical address extension support for the ARM architecture, and more. Much more information can be found on the KernelNewbies 3.3 page.

The 3.4 merge window is open; see the separate article below for a summary of what has been merged so far.

Stable updates: the 3.0.25 and 3.2.12 stable updates were released, with the usual pile of important fixes, on March 19. For users of older kernels, the and long term kernel releases, with a relatively small number of fixes, came out on March 17.

The 3.0.26 and 3.2.13 stable updates are in the review process as of this writing; they can be expected on or after March 23.
