It's been about two weeks since the Linux 2.6.27-rc5 kernel was released, but last night Linus released the sixth release candidate. In the LKML release announcement, Linus notes that the major changes with this release are updates to the gspca USB web camera driver and removing the defunct miropcm20* driver from the kernel.
