Linux 2.6.31

,----[ Quote ]
| Ok, there's just a few final commits since -rc9 to fix a couple of last 
| regressions and problems, and now the final 2.6.31 is out there. The small 
| diffstat and shortlog is below, the full log and diff from 2.6.30 are 
| being uploaded to kernel.org (and then mirrored out) as I write this.
| In general, the full set of 2.6.30->31 changes are too numerous to list, 
| but as usual, you'll find some high-level overviews on kernelnewbies.org.

| As announced on the LKML mailing list at just past 11pm yesterday, Linus

| I know I said I'd just release the final 2.6.31 when I was done diving,  but
| there were more pull requests while I was away than I'm comfortable with at
| this stage. So I'm doing an -rc9 to let it simmer for a couple of days and
| get some last-minute testing before doing the final release.


Linux 2.6.31 Kernel Is Ready With -RC8 Release

| The Linux 2.6.31 kernel brings ATI kernel mode-setting support for the R500
| (Radeon X1000) graphics cards and earlier as a staging driver, TTM GPU
| memory
| management support as part of the ATI KMS push, adds support for USB 3.0, a
| performance counter subsystem, new hardware drivers, and other changes.


Kernel Improvements, Controversies Will Be Focus of Roundtable

| I think the next releases of GNOME and KDE are pushing us much farther along
| towards the leading edge here, and I'm interested to see what actually
| emerges as viable technology for the next generation of user interfaces.


Linux 2.6.31-rc6

,----[ Quote ]
| Lots of small fixes all over, spread out fairly evenly (50% drivers,  and
| roughly 10% each in arch, fs, kernel, tools/perf, "rest"). And things  do
| 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.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
