Kernel 2.6.32 Enters Final Test Phase

Sep 29, 2009

Linus Torvalds has announced RC1 for Linux Kernel 2.6.32.

In his announcement, Torvalds estimated the changes to the new kernel as being 67% drivers (mostly from the staging tree), 10% firmware and 10% architectural updates. The ARM platform constituted the lion's share of the latter. Another 5% consisted of documentation changes and the remainder was "a random smattering of other things," among them updates for filesystems and networking. The RC1 downloads are on Kernel.org.
