As is often the case, with a new month comes new, exiting ideas from the Linux kernel community. Today, I present to you with much admiration and bombastic prose, Linux 2.6.23-rc5.
Now humbled, we can examine the details of this release candidate:
I’m making ready to leave for the kernel summit (as are probably a lot of other core kernel people), and as part of that, there’s a 2.6.23-rc5 out there now.
Hopefully we’ve addressed most regressions, so please do give it a good testing.
The shortlog and diffstat are appended: the diffstat is uglified by some powerpc defconfig updates, but otherwise it all looks pretty nice and small. The shortlog is fairly informative if you care about the details of what changed, but it does end up boiling down to “fixing a number of generally pretty small issues”. Mostly in drivers and SCTP.
So have fun, give it a go, and expect a quiet week next week. — Linus
Kernel summits and uglified diffsat’s? Truly, this fine September could not get any more bright.
