[News] A Look at Linux 2.6.1 and Kernel Space Security Policy

Kernel Log â Coming in 2.6.31 - Part 3: Storage and file systems

,----[ Quote ]
| The experimental file system Btrfs, billed as the "next generation file 
| system for Linux", should now be even faster. Libata drivers for IDE/PATA 
| adaptors are pushing aside the IDE subsystem. The first components for 
| defragmenting Ext4 file systems have been merged into the main development 
| tree. Systems with Intel ATA chipsets now boot faster thanks to parallel 
| hardware scanning.     


Torvalds bashes vendor-sec private Linux security list

| I completely agree. Openness and transparency are the key to true security. 
| However, I do also understand how this can put vendors and users at risk, 
| since patches aren't going to be co-ordinated. It's a tough call and very 
| delicate balance that needs to be achieved.   



Linux 2.6.31-rc6

| Lots of small fixes all over, spread out fairly evenly (50% drivers, Âand
| roughly 10% each in arch, fs, kernel, tools/perf, "rest"). And things Âdo
| seem to be calming down, because outside of some further i915 displayport
| patches and a couple of perf-counter patches, almost all of them are pretty
| dang small.
