The 2.6.16 kernel is out

Filed under
Linux

Linus has announced the release of the 2.6.16 kernel. A fair number of fixes have been merged since 2.6.16-rc6, but nothing too major.

For those just tuning in, some of the big, user-visible changes in this kernel include the OCFS2 cluster filesystem, a number of networking changes including CUBIC congestion control, TIPC support, and an IPv6 version of DCCP, the swap migration and direct migration patches, a new SCHED_BATCH scheduler class, a number of new filesystem-oriented system calls, and the error detection and correction code.

Full Blurb.
