From the author: "With the official release of Linux
2.6.0 just hours ago, I've just put the finishing touches on my
'Wonderful World of Linux 2.6' document, my reasonably complete
description of new features in the kernel update..."
From the introduction:
"Although it seems like only yesterday that we were booting up
our first Linux 2.4 systems, time has ticked by and the kernel
development team has just released the 2.6 kernel to the public.
This document is intended as a general overview of the features in
the new kernel release, with a heavy bias toward i386 Linux. Please
also be aware that some of the 'new' features discussed here may
have been back-ported to Linux 2.4 after first appearing in Linux
2.6, either officially or by a distribution vendor. I have also
included information on a handful of cases where a new feature
originated during the maintenance cycle of Linux 2.4, and those
will be marked as appropriate in the text.
"At present, this document has been translated into ten
languages. Please see the 'Translations' section at the very bottom
for more information..."
