"While Linux 2.6.36 development continues apace, a number of new stable releases iron out various quirks in previous versions. New versions of PowerTop and graphics drivers for AMD and NVIDIA graphics chips offer numerous enhancements and bug fixes.

"The road to Linux 2.6.36

"Less than 48 hours after last Monday's release of Linux 2.6.35, Linus Torvalds commenced the process of merging in the major changes destined for kernel version 2.6.36. By this morning (Tuesday), he had undertaken 5,859 commits, adding 474,097 and removing 376,182 lines of code from 6680 files. As anticipated, these changes included security framework AppArmor. Less well anticipated was the decision to hold off on merging the Yama Security Module. Kernel hackers have merged the concurrency managed workqueue patches and an lirc interface for the infrared remote control subsystem introduced in 2.6.35."
