Kernel Log: Coming in 2.6.34 (Part 3) - Graphics

,----[ Quote ]
| Having renamed Linux kernel 2.6.34-rc5 Sheep 
| on Meth, late last week Linus Torvalds 
| released the sixth pre-release version of 
| Linux 2.6.34. The rate and scope of changes 
| is, as usual at this stage in the 
| development cycle, slowly declining, but, 
| apart from a vague suggestion that 2.6.34 is 
| close to completion, Torvalds has given no 
| indication of when it will be released â 
| expectations are that it will be out in one 
| to three weeks.

Jon Corbet QA: Upstream Contributions Influence Direction of Linux Kernel 

,----[ Quote ]
| Jon Corbet is a highly-recognized 
| contributor to the Linux kernel community. 
| He is a developer and the executive editor 
| of Linux Weekly News (LWN). He is also The 
| Linux Foundation's chief meteorologist, a 
| role in which he translates kernel-level 
| milestones into an industry outlook for 
| Linux. Corbet has also written extensively 
| on how to work within the Linux kernel 
| development community and has moderated a 
| variety of panels on the topic. Today, he 
| gives us an update on the Linux "weather 
| forecast," why sharing your code upstream is 
| critical, and the state of virtualization in 
| the kernel.

LINBIT takes over Heartbeat Code Maintenance 

,----[ Quote ]
| Philipp Reisner, CTO, LINBIT notes that 
| LINBIT continues to boost its dedication to 
| open source and High-Availability by 
| adopting Heartbeat: âApart from DRBD, LINBIT 
| now also maintains another important 
| component of the Linux-HA stack. In the 
| past, LINBIT has repeatedly contributed to 
| other parts of Linux-HA including Pacemaker. 
| One can say that if you are relying on 
| Linux-HA, you are also relying upon LINBIT. 
| If you want to achieve High-Availability in 
| Linux, it's impossible without LINBIT!" 



Linux: 2.6.34-rc4, "Hunting A Really Annoying VM Regression"

,----[ Quote ]
| "It's been two weeks rather than the usual
| one, because we've been hunting a really
| annoying VM regression that not a lot of
| people seem to have seen, but I didn't
| want to release an -rc4 with it," began
| Linux creator Linus Torvalds, announcing
| the 2.6.34-rc4 Linux kernel. He explained,
| "we had the choice of either reverting all
| the anon-vma scalability improvements, or
| finding out exactly what caused the
| regression and fixing it. And we got
| pretty close to the point where I was
| going to just revert it all."
