There was no new Linux kernel release last week due to the Kernel Summit and Linux Plumbers Conference, but Linus Torvalds has now pushed out the late 2.6.27-rc7 kernel release. This release is made up of many small changes, but nothing major. The Linux 2.6.27-rc7 release announcement can be read on the kernel mailing list
. Even if we end up hitting a Linux 2.6.27-rc8 kernel, it looks like the final Linux 2.6.27
release will be out in early October.
