"The Nouveau driver now supports power management and can
address the GeForce 320M, and the code for Intel graphics cores now
supports the video units on Sandy Bridge processors, which are due
to be released shortly. A number of changes to the Radeon KMS
driver should improve its performance.
"Linus Torvalds released the third pre-release version of Linux
2.6.37 ten days ago and then despite Thanksgiving and a trip to
Tokyo, he kept to his usual tempo and the fourth pre-release
version was released two days ago.
"The final release of 2.6.37 will probably be in late December
or early January next year. The current developer version already
resembles the final version pretty closely, since kernel hackers
have, as ever, used the merge window which opens the development
cycle, to merge all major changes into the main development tree.
The current stabilisation phase is reserved primarily for bug-fixes
rather than major changes, to avoid introducing further bugs."
