Linux 2.6.32-rc6 Kernel Now Released
The Linux 2.6.32-rc5 kernel was released over two weeks ago, but it was not until today that 2.6.32-rc6 was tagged. This is not because of Linus's affection towards Windows 7, but rather the Linux Kernel Summit that was taking place in Tokyo and a nasty data-loss-causing EXT4 regression had to be tracked down and addressed. Linux 2.6.32-rc6 is available though right now and it carries a good number of changes considering the time-span between releases, including some regression fixes that were introduced during the 2.6.31 cycle and various driver updates.
The Linux 2.6.32 kernel brings support for 3D and KMS on ATI R600/700 graphics cards, several new wireless drivers, an improved VIA frame-buffer, Radeon TV-Out support, VGA Arbitration, dynamic clocking for Intel hardware, and other DRM improvements.
The Linux 2.6.32-rc6 kernel release announcement can be read on LKML.org.
