Kernel Log: New stable kernels and drivers

"While new stable kernel releases seem to have become somewhat less frequent, they now include more changes. Although the most recent version of AMD's proprietary graphics drivers finally work with X Server 1.7, NVIDIA's drivers already work with version 1.8. Videos of the Linux Audio Conference and the Collaboration Summit provide insights into audio and kernel topics.

"At the end of April, the maintainers of the Linux kernel's Stable Series released 2.6.32.12 and 2.6.33.3. Both versions were released three-and-a-half weeks after their respective predecessors, one containing almost 200 and the other more than 130 patches – it seems that the intervals between new stable kernel releases are becoming slightly longer, and that the number of changes integrated into the new versions is getting somewhat larger.

"A review for the next Stable Kernels hasn't been started on LKML yet, but Greg Kroah-Hartman has already integrated a few patches for the next versions to his Git-Tree."
