Stable Linux Kernel 2.6.19 Released

Filed under
Linux

Linus has just tagged v2.6.19 of his vanilla Linux kernel tree. Not many changes here, so if it doesn't compile it's your fault. But the kernel team might just fix it anyway Wink

There it finally is (or rather - I'm currently uploading the tar-file and
patches, and the mirrors are hopefully busily pushing out the git tree
that is already updated).

There's not a lot to be said about the changes since -rc6: the shortlog
(appended) tells the whole story, and it's really mostly a lot of
one-liners or other really small changes. Bugs fixed, but nothing that
stands out in my mind.

So go get it. It's one of those rare "perfect" kernels.
