As was anticipated seven days ago when releasing the Linux 2.6.36-rc6 kernel
, there is a Linux 2.6.36-rc7 kernel to come and it's just been released. The good news is that Linus Torvalds believes this will be the last release candidate before the Linux 2.6.36 kernel
is officially released.
The Linux 2.6.36-rc7 kernel just offers up bug-fixes and other trivial work, but none of the changes in the past week are particularly exciting or noteworthy. The Linux 2.6.36-rc7 release announcement can be read at LKML.org
. We continue to benchmark the latest Linux kernel source-code on a daily basis at kernel-tracker.phoromatic.com
This means that the Linux 2.6.36 kernel should be out within a week or so and after that we can start getting excited for the Linux 2.6.37 kernel
, which is already set to carry some interesting driver improvements and other innovations.
