Kernel Log: Linux 2.6.35 taking shape

,----[ Quote ]
| Linux 2.6.35 will deliver better network 
| throughput, support the Turbo Core 
| functionality offered by the latest AMD 
| processors and de-fragment memory as 
| required. On LKML, a discussion on merging 
| several patches developed by Google for 
| Android is generating large volumes of email.
| Two weeks on from the release of Linux 
| 2.6.34, on Sunday night Linus Torvalds  
| released the first pre-release version of 
| Linux 2.6.35 to concluding the merge of the 
| major changes for the next kernel version, 
| expected to be released in about ten weeks. 
| The merge window has once again stretched to 
| around 14 days, after its abbreviation in 
| Linux 2.6.34 caused confusion among some 
| subsystem maintainers.

A Plethora Of Cloud Computing Benchmarks

,----[ Quote ]
| One of the companies that we have been 
| collaborating with on some of the features 
| for the Phoronix Test Suite has been 
| CloudHarmony, which is a company that seeks 
| to provide an assortment of information on 
| different cloud computing platforms and 
| offerings from the various firms. Using the 
| Phoronix Test Suite they have been 
| benchmarking a plethora of different cloud 
| computing platforms and today they have 
| published a huge batch of results -- 
| benchmarks from over 150 different cloud 
| server configurations from 20 different 
| providers!



Linux 2.6.35-rc1

| It's been two weeks, and so the merge
| window is closed. There may be a few trees
| I haven't pulled yet, but the bulk should
| all be there. And please, let's try to make
| the merge window mean something this time -
| don't send me any new pull request unless
| they are for real regressions or for major
| bugs, ok?
| This time, there are no new filesystems
| (surprise surprise), but there's certainly
| been filesystem work both on an individual
| FS layer (btrfs, cept, cifs, ext4, nfs,
| ocfs2 and xfs) and at the VFS layer
| (superblock and quota cleanups in
| particular).
