Linus Torvalds: Linux 2.6.7-rc3

Jun 07, 2004, 20:00 (2 Talkback[s])
(Other stories by Linus Torvalds)

Kernel.org Mirrors

Full Changelog

Ok, let's calm down for a while before the final 2.6.7.

-rc3 does a lot of sparse type cleanup, mainly thanks to Al Viro (but his work ended up getting some other people involved too, since the list of sparse warnings isn't as daunting any more). Some of that has unearthed real bugs which Al fixed.

But there are DRM, AGP, cpufreq, sparc64, and input updates there too. See the appended shortlog for more details,

Linus
