It's only been a couple days since Linux 2.6.26-rc7
, but today Linus Torvalds has released Linux 2.6.26-rc8, or what will hopefully be the last testing release for the Linux 2.6.26 kernel. The two changes making up most of this new release candidate are minor alterations to Xen
virtualization. Linus will be gone for about a week, but he hopes this is the last release candidate before the Linux 2.6.26 kernel goes gold.
