Linux 2.6.19 includes the clustering GFS2 filesystem (lwn.net/Articles/204905), Mobile IPv6 (RFC 3775), some new drivers, improved support for many already existing drivers, and many other things.
Plus d’info là:
There it finally is (or rather - I’m currently uploading the tar-file and patches, and the mirrors are hopefully busily pushing out the git tree that is already updated).
There’s not a lot to be said about the changes since -rc6: the shortlog (appended) tells the whole story, and it’s really mostly a lot of one-liners or other really small changes. Bugs fixed, but nothing that stands out in my mind.
So go get it. It’s one of those rare “perfect” kernels. So if it doesn’t happen to compile with your config (or it does compile, but then does unspeakable acts of perversion with your pet dachshund), you can rest easy knowing that it’s all your own d*mn fault, and you should just fix your evil ways.
You could send me and the kernel mailing list a note about it anyway, of course. (And perhaps pictures, if your dachshund is involved. Not that we’d be interested, of course. No. Just so that we’d know to avoid it next time).
