[News] Linux 2009.0 Already in Second RC, Another Stable Kernel Out

Hash: SHA1

Linux 2.6.28-rc2

,----[ Quote ]
| It's not been a week yet, but we had a few annoying brown-paper-bugs in 
| -rc1 that made it hard for many people to test without applying patches. 
| So rather than wait out the week, I'll just make an -rc2 early, with the 
| fixes for the problems that kept people from testing it.
| And hey, maybe we can even _continue_ the nice model of "just small fixes 
| after -rc1". I know, it sounds insane, but it's a real pleasure to do an 
| -rc2 with just a handful of fixes for real problems that real people see. 
| What a concept!


Stable kernel

,----[ Quote ]
| The stable kernel update has been released. This one contains a fair 
| number of important fixes, one of which has a CVE number attached to it. 



Linux 2.6.28-rc1 Kernel Released

,----[ Quote ]
| With two weeks having passed since the Linux 2.6.27 kernel release, Linus
| Torvalds has closed the merge window for the next kernel (Linux 2.6.28) and
| he has pushed out the first release candidate in this next series.


A pile of stable kernel updates

,----[ Quote ]
| The,, and stable kernel updates are out; each
| contains about a dozen important fixes. It seems that 2.6.25 and 2.6.26 will
| probably only get one more stable update after this, so users of mainline
| kernels are being encouraged to move forward to 2.6.27.


Linux Foundation: the kernel is worth $1.4 billion

,----[ Quote ]
| The Linux Foundation has published the results of a study that the
| organization conducted in order to compute the approximate financial value of
| the Linux platform. Based on the results of the study, the Linux Foundation
| has concluded that it would cost $1.4 billion to develop the Linux kernel
| from scratch and $10.8 billion to develop the complete platform stack.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
