Kernel Log: Coming in 2.6.32 (Part 5)

Filed under

Since Linus Torvalds has been on the road this week, there have been no changes to the main development branch in the past few days. However, numerous developers have already sent emails to the LKML, asking the father of Linux to merge corrections. As the number of bug fixes increases, so does the likelihood that Torvalds will throw in another release candidate of 2.6.32 when he returns – when releasing Rc8, the father of Linux had still hoped this might be the last release candidate.

Therefore, the Kernel Log will wrap up its report about the new features of 2.6.32 with parts 5 and 6. This issue discusses the changes in terms of architecture code, memory management, virtualisation and tracing in the penultimate part of its "Coming in 2.6.32" series. The previous four parts of the series discussed the advancements in the network subsystem as well as those in the fields of graphics hardware, storage hardware, filesystems and further drivers.
