Kernel Log: What's new in 2.6.29 - Part 3: Kernel controlled graphics modes

,----[ Quote ]
| With the release of 2.6.29-rc1 last weekend, Linus Torvalds concluded the 
| first phase, called the merge window, of the development cycle. This phase 
| allows for incorporating the substantial changes intended for the next kernel 
| version into the source code management system of the Linux kernel.   


Active Directory comes to Linux with Samba 4

,----[ Quote ]
| Enterprise networks now have an alternative choice to Microsoft Active 
| Directory (AD) servers, with the open source Samba project aiming for feature 
| parity with the forthcoming release of version 4, according to Canberra-based 
| Samba developer Andrew Bartlett.   
| Speaking at this year's linux.conf.au Linux and open source conference in 
| Hobart, Bartlett said Samba 4 is aiming to be a replacement for AD by 
| providing a free software implementation of Microsoft's custom protocols.   



Linux 2.6.29-rc1

,----[ Quote ]
| The merge window is over, and while it is quite possible that I missed a
| few merge requests in the crazy week that is behind us, apart from those
| we should now have most of the bulk of 2.6.29 merged up. And now it's just
| a small matter of making sure it's all stable and ready to go.


The innovations of Linux 2.6.28

,----[ Quote ]
| The Ext4 file system leaves its main development phase and will soon be ripe
| for productive use. Major renovation work on the code for memory and disk
| management promises GPU speed increases and better scalability. Hundreds of
| new and revised drivers improve hardware compatibility significantly.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
