Late last night the Linux 2.6.30-rc6 kernel was released by Linus Torvalds. With development work on the Linux 2.6.30 kernel
slowing down, there are only about 300 commits that make up this new release candidate. Some of the fixes include that of a PowerPC architecture update, Intel i915 DRM fixes, NILFS2 and ReiserFS file-system updates, Serial ATA updates, and various other small fixes.
The Linux 2.6.30-rc6 kernel release announcement can be found at LKML.org
. We should be just a few weeks out from the release of the Linux 2.6.30 kernel with its new log-structured file-system, a Fastboot option, various performance improvements, support for the Microblaze architecture, and the integration of an integrity management architecture.
