Linux Kernel Update Improves Event Monitoring

Filed under
Linux

The next stable update of the Linux kernel will bring advances in file system event monitoring, the Xtensa architecture, and a set of system calls that allows users to load another kernel from the currently executing Linux kernel.

While the 2.6.13 -rc (release candidates) are currently being tested, the stable version is expected to be released in the next few weeks, kernel developers told eWEEK.

In fact, Linus Torvalds, the "father" of Linux, this week told kernel developers on the Linux Kernel Mailing List that he "really wanted to release a 2.6.13, but there's been enough changes while we've been waiting for other issues to resolve that I think it's best to do a -rc7 first," he said.

Rest of Story.

However, the Ubuntu platform has moved forward in leaps and bounds in recent years when it comes to the official availability of popular apps and we are confident that this trend will continue.
