Maandag is versie 2.6.34 van de Linux Kernel vrijgegeven. De kernel is het hart van het besturingssysteem en zit, simpel gezegd, als laag tussen de hardware en de applicaties in. In versie 2.6.34 zitten geen spannende dingen, zo liet Linus Torvalds weten. Het volledige changelog is hier na te lezen. Hieronder is de aankondiging van Linus te vinden.
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.
So 2.6.34 is out, and the merge window is thus officially open. As usual, I probably won't do any real pulls for a day or two, in the (probably futile) hope that we'll have more people running plain 2.6.34 for a while. But you can certainly start sending me pull requests.
Go forth and test,
