Linux 2.6.31 Kernel Released, With ATI KMS Glory
It's arriving a few days later than anticipated, but the Linux 2.6.31 kernel has now been released. The Linux 2.6.31 kernel brings ATI Radeon kernel mode-setting support up through the R500 series (the R600/700 KMS and 3D support is coming with Linux 2.6.32), many other graphics / DRM improvements (including Intel DisplayPort and Clarkdale / Arrandale support), a performance counters infrastructure, USB 3.0 support, and many more changes.
The Linus Torvalds release announcement for the Linux 2.6.31 kernel can be read on the Linux kernel mailing list while a more exhaustive list of changes can be found at KernelNewbies.org. Now it's time to get thinking about Linux 2.6.32!
