2.6.34 is Out; Letâs Review

| NILFS2 is a different type of file system 
| which is termed a log-structured file system. 
| You can read a summary of it here. Rather than 
| write to a tree structure such as a b-tree or 
| an h-tree, either with or without a journal, a 
| log-structured file system writes all data and 
| metadata sequentially in a continuous stream 
| that is called a log (actually it is a 
| circular log). Because of this design it is 
| very easy for NILFS2 to create snapshots and 
| mount them along side the file system itself. 
| But one of the more desirable features of 
| NILFS2 is performance.

| This week sees the launch of 2.6.35-rc2, plus 
| other goodies, so letâs dive into it!


Linux 2.6.35-rc3

,----[ Quote ]
| So I've been hardnosed now for a week - 
| perhaps overly so - and hopefully that means 
| that 2.6.35-rc3 will be better than -rc2 was. 
| Not only do we have a number of regressions 
| handled, we don't have that silly memory 
| corruptor that bit so many people with -rc2 
| and confused people with its many varied forms 
| of bugs it seemed to take, depending on just 
| what random memory it happened to corrupt.



Linux 2.6.34 Kernel Released! Time For 2.6.35

| Nothing very interesting here, which is
| just how I like it. Various random fixes
| all over, nothing really stands out.
| Pretty much all of it is one- or few-
| liners, I think the biggest patch in the
| last week was fixing some semantics for
| the new SR-IOV VF netlink interface. And
| even that wasn't a _big_ patch by any
| means.

| The Nouveau driver for GeForce graphics
| hardware now includes everything you need
| to dynamically generate open source
| firmware for NV50 GPUs on demand, so that
| 8xxx, 9xxx and GTX2x0 series GeForce
| graphics chips will now run without the
| controversial ctxprogs, generated using
| proprietary graphics drivers.


Linux 2.6.34 Kernel Debuts With New Filesystems

,----[ Quote ]
| The Linux 2.6.34 kernel is now available,
| delivering new filesystems to the open
| source operating system.
| Among the big new items included in the
| 2.6.34 release is the Ceph distributed
| filesystem and LogFS, a filesystem geared
| toward flash media devices. The update
| comes as the second major Linux kernel
| development of 2010 and follows the Linux
| 2.6.33 kernel release by just under three
| months.
