"With the fifth release candidate of Linux 2.6.30 out a few days
ago, the development of the next kernel version in the main
development line continues to progress. As indicated by Linus
Torvalds in his release email, the changes are slowly decreasing in
number and size, which is what usually happens at this development
"As every development cycle tends to have eight or nine
pre-release versions which often appear on a weekly basis, it will
be another few weeks before Torvalds releases Linux 2.6.30.
Nevertheless, the Kernel Log will continue its review of the major
changes in Linux 2.6.30 with the following overview of the new
developments in the storage infrastructure and driver areas."
