"The Nouveau driver now supports power management and can address the GeForce 320M, and the code for Intel graphics cores now supports the video units on Sandy Bridge processors, which are due to be released shortly. A number of changes to the Radeon KMS driver should improve its performance.

"Linus Torvalds released the third pre-release version of Linux 2.6.37 ten days ago and then despite Thanksgiving and a trip to Tokyo, he kept to his usual tempo and the fourth pre-release version was released two days ago.

"The final release of 2.6.37 will probably be in late December or early January next year. The current developer version already resembles the final version pretty closely, since kernel hackers have, as ever, used the merge window which opens the development cycle, to merge all major changes into the main development tree. The current stabilisation phase is reserved primarily for bug-fixes rather than major changes, to avoid introducing further bugs."
