Kernell 2.6.22.RC-1. “O que você pensar... Foi feito!”- Linus Trovalds

OK. Então foi lançado o novo kernell 2.6.22.rc-1 do Linux e Linus Trovalds em uma carta a comunidade informou que mais de 7.000 arquivos foram mudados, isso sem considerar os arquivos movidos.
Foram feitos updates de:
Arquitetura
Drivers
Sistemas de Arquivos
Redes
Segurança
Scripts
Reorganizações
Limpezas

O que você imaginar foi feito...
Nova Estrutura de Rede WiFi
Drivers de Infiniband
Drivers de Vídeo Digital
Totalmente nova arquitetura de CPU
Está aberto para testes e reports...

Veja a carta na íntegra:

From: Linus Torvalds <>
Subject:Linux 2.6.22-rc1

Ok, the merge window has closed, and 2.6.22-rc1 is out there.

The diffstat and shortlogs are way too big to fit under the kernel mailing
list limits, and the changes are all over the place. Almost seven thousand
files changed, and that's not double-counting the files that got moved
around.

Architecture updates, drivers, filesystems, networking, security, build
scripts, reorganizations, cleanups.. You name it, it's there.

You want a new firewire stack? We've got it. New wireless networking
infrastructure? Check. New infiniband drivers? Digital video drivers? A
totally new CPU architecture (blackfin)? Check, check, check.

That said, I think (and certainly hope) that this will not be nearly as
painful as the big fundamental timer changes for 2.6.21, and while there
are some pretty core changes there (like the new SLUB allocator, which
hopefully will end up replacing both SLAB and SLOB), it feels pretty
solid, and not as scary as ripping the carpet from under the timer
infrastructure.

So give it a good testing. We'll see how the regression tracking ends up
working, but in order to actually track that, we want people actively
testing -rc1 and making good reports!
