kernel news, Linux kernel
The latest stable version of the Linux kernel dropped over the weekend. Linus Torvalds had this to say in the kernel mailing list:
Not a whole lot of changes since -rc7: some small architecture changes (ppc, mips, blackfin), and most of those are defconfig updates. Various driver fixes: new PCI ID’s along with some ide, ata and networking fixes (for example – the magic wireless libertas ioctl’s got removed, they may be re-added later, hopefully in a more generic form, but in the meantime this doesn’t make a release with new interfaces that aren’t universally liked) … And various random fixes for regressions and other buglets.
And there you have it. Happy Monday.
