Kernel release status

The current 2.6 kernel prepatch is 2.6.8-rc2, which was released by Linus just prior to heading off to Ottawa. Changes this time include another big set of "sparse" annotations, a USB update, and lots of fixes; see the long-format changelog for the details.

Linus's BitKeeper repository has acquired no patches since 2.6.8-rc2. There have also been no new -mm releases in the last week; expect the process to remain stopped for a few days until OLS is done. Thereafter, expect a large flood of patches as various developers test the limits of the new development process, which states that more intrusive patches are welcome in 2.6.

The current 2.4 prepatch remains 2.4.27-rc3; Marcelo has released no patches since July 3.

Marcelo is also in Canada. 3rd row, second from the right. They guy in black. Do not expect much, then, in the stable kernel, either.
