"Last Thursday night, Linus Torvalds released 2.6.32-rc8. He
indicated that this would be the last release candidate of Linux
2.6.32 if progress continues the way it has been going – that
is, if no major new problems appear and the developers continue to
work on the known problems without causing major restructuring
measures. Torvalds also said he wished that more developers would
work on fixing the bugs on the regression list – but that at
some point he's just going to have to say "ok, enough is enough"
and release the new version.
"Having provided an overview of the changes to the network
subsystem, the graphics hardware and the storage hardware and
filesystems in the previous three issues, this issue of the Kernel
Log's "Coming in Linux 2.6.32" series looks at the drivers for
other hardware components."
