Work on the Linux 2.6.28 kernel
is winding down and yesterday afternoon Linus Torvalds made available the sixth release candidate in this series. The Linux 2.6.28-rc6 kernel has a few architecture and file-system updates, but really the change-log is just made up of minor regressions and fixes.
The release announcement for the Linux 2.6.28-rc6 kernel can be read here
. It looks like we may see this kernel, which has mainline support for the Graphics Execution Manager
and many driver updates, arrive in early to mid December.
