Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"Several changes to the X86 and KVM code are to speed up the kernel's own hypervisor. The kernel developers once again revised and considerably extended the still emerging tracing infrastructure. The Power and PowerPC code now also supports the Gamecube and Wii games consoles.

"When releasing Linux 2.6.33-rc7 at the end of last week, Linus Torvalds expressed some dissatisfaction because the main development branch currently contains more flaws than he would like. He asked the developers to take another close look at the list of known bugs in the predecessor of 2.6.33 and indicated that he will probably release an eighth RC before finalising Linux 2.6.33.

"The Kernel Log takes this opportunity to continue itsreport about the advancements of Linux 2.6.33, discussing what's new in terms of architecture support, kernel infrastructure, tracing and virtualisation in the following fourth part of the "Coming in 2.6.33" mini series. The first, second and third part of this series covered the most important changes concerning network support, file systems, the storage subsystem and graphics hardware."
