One week after the relatively painless Linux 2.6.37-rc2
release came about, the third release candidate for the Linux 2.6.37 kernel
has come around.
The Linux 2.6.37-rc3 kernel, like its predecessor, is an unexciting release as well with just a smaller than usual amount of churn and bug-fixes. A majority of the Linux 2.6.36-rc3 release is made up of DRM graphics driver fixes, which upset Linus earlier this week
for a variety of reasons.
The Linux 2.6.37-rc3 kernel release can be found at LKML.org
. The latest kernel code for Linux continues to be benchmarked daily at kernel-tracker.phoromatic.com
. The Linux 2.6.37 release brings the ability to build the core kernel code without the BKL
(Big Kernel Lock), various graphics improvements
, an Intel Poulsbo driver
, the Broadcom 802.11n WiFi Linux driver
, and much more.
