Development work on the Linux 2.6.29 kernel
had slowed down a bit due to Linux.Conf.Au
taking place last week, but the third release candidate has now been issued. There's a variety of bug-fixes and minor updates through the Linux kernel in 2.6.29-rc3, but nothing particularly exciting. Catching our eyes were just a few DRM updates (small work on GEM
) and just a variety of driver updates.
The lengthy release announcement for the Linux 2.6.29-rc3 kernel can be read at LKML.org
. With this release, kernel developers are particularly interested in how the suspend-and-resume support is working out for users and whether there are any new regressions.
