Stable kernel

,----[ Quote ]
| The stable kernel update is 
| available. There are over 90 fixes in this 
| update, quite a few of which are security-
| related. Subscribers can refer to our 
| detailed summary for more information on 
| the changes in this release. 


Linux 2.6.33 Boosts Graphics, Dumps Android

,----[ Quote ]
| The Linux 2.6.33 kernel is the first new 
| kernel release of 2010 and follows the 
| 2.6.32 kernel release by nearly three 
| months. Key to the new update are 
| enhancements in graphics and storage 
| capabilities.


XGI Working On Big Linux Patch For Big Feature

,----[ Quote ]
| This is what XGI's Jong Lin wrote today to 
| the xorg-devel mailing list. It looks like 
| Jonh is getting ready to send a batch of 
| patches to the list, but apparently the 
| patches are big because of "big features" 
| (hopefully more than just EXA) so Jong is 
| concerned about the length. We'll see what 
| patches end up getting submitted.



Kernel Log: Coming in 2.6.33 (Part 4) - Architecture and virtualisation

,----[ Quote ]
| Several changes to the X86 and KVM code are to
| speed up the kernel's own hypervisor. The
| kernel developers once again revised and
| considerably extended the still emerging
| tracing infrastructure. The Power and PowerPC
| code now also supports the Gamecube and Wii
| games consoles.
| When releasing Linux 2.6.33-rc7 at the end of
| last week, Linus Torvalds expressed some
| dissatisfaction because the main development
| branch currently contains more flaws than he
| would like. He asked the developers to take
| another close look at the list of known bugs
| in the predecessor of 2.6.33 and indicated
| that he will probably release an eighth RC
| before finalising Linux 2.6.33.


Linux 2.6.33-rc7


Linux 2.6.33-rc6

,----[ Quote ]
| Hmm. About 50% arch updates, and 40% drivers,
| with the rest being a smattering of mainly fs
| and networking updates.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
