"Measures to optimise the power management code and fully support the Turbo Core function of recent AMD six-core processors increase the data throughput and processing speed of Linux 2.6.35. Further kernel additions include tracing interfaces for KVM, another kernel configuration program, and functions for de-fragmenting the working memory.

"On Thursday evening, Linus Torvalds announced the sixth release candidate of kernel version 2.6.35. In his release email, Torvalds indicated that this could be the last RC before Linux 2.6.35 is finalised.

"In Part 4, the Kernel Log continues its "Coming in 2.6.35" mini series and describes the kernel's advancements in terms of architecture and infrastructure code. Part 1 described the changes in the graphics hardware area, Part 2 dealt with storage aspects and file systems and Part 3 with the network code and drivers. Part 5 about audio hardware drivers as well as USB, FireWire and V4L / DVB etc drivers will complete our mini series in a few days."
