Kernel release status

The current development kernel is 3.4-rc2, released on April 7. It includes a lot of fixes; Linus also decided to pull the DMA mapping rework preparatory patches. That should be the end of the significant merges for this development cycle, though: "I'm going to be stricter about pulls from here on out, there was a lot of 'noise', not just pure fixes." The short-form changelog can be found in the announcement.

Stable updates: there have been no stable updates released in the last week. The 3.0.28, 3.2.15, and 3.3.2 updates are in the review process as of this writing. Each contains a long list of fixes; the final release can be expected on or after April 13.
