"Another month, another kernel release. Last month saw what is hopefully the final RC (release candidate) 2.6.33 kernel, and so it should have been released by the time you read this. The latest kernel includes lots of shiny new features that have been developed over the past three months since 2.6.32, including some nice virtualisation speed-ups (detecting when virtual machine guest's VCPUs are within spinlocks and automatically yielding), driver updates and the removal of the legacy 'anticipatory' IO scheduler (long since replaced in function by the CFQ or 'Completely Fair Queuing' one).
