In March we should see the release of the Linux 2.6.29 kernel
with the addition of Intel kernel mode-setting
, the Btrfs file-system
, and numerous driver improvements, but those that want to see a good and well-tested release should provide a hand in testing out the latest release candidate. Linus Torvalds last night pushed out Linux 2.6.29-rc6.
The Linux 2.6.29-rc6 kernel has some documentation movement and various driver regression fixes. Worth noting is also a fairly sizable DRM update for the Intel i915 driver that should address a few outstanding problems. The Linux 2.6.29-rc6 release announcement with the short change-log can be read via Google Groups
