"The kernel will also in future make better use of energy saving
features in the latest Wi-Fi hardware and Oracle is contributing

"As with previous kernel versions, the recent release of the
second pre-release version of Linux 2.6.30 saw a good few major

main Linux development tree. Further major changes are rare in the
second phase of the development cycle, so that the second
pre-release version should now contain all the major changes for
the next major kernel revision."
