The 2.6.25 cycle settles in

The 2.6.25-rc1 prepatch was released on February 10. The -rc1 release, of course, indicates the closing of the merge window and the beginning of the stabilization period for this cycle. So I’ve updated all of the weather forecast pages to reflect what went in and what didn’t, and generally updated it (often by extending potential merge dates into the future - I never promised I actually knew what I was talking about…)

Linux.conf.au and the Penguin Parade

This year I was lucky enough to attend Linux.conf.au in beautiful Melbourne, Australia. We were a sponsor of the conference, meaning that we did what we often times do: ensure talented speakers could attend. Many people don’t realize (or perhaps they do) that while a majority of open source developers get paid to work on open source by their companies at least part of the time, those companies don’t necessarily want to pay for them to speak or attend open source conferences.

2.6.24 is out

As I predicted, Linus released 2.6.24 just before heading off to linux.conf.au in Melbourne. He’s slipping, though: usually he waits until I’ve gotten on a plane and can’t update web sites before shoving a release out the door. I’m still here, though, so the main Weather Forecast page has been updated to reflect the current state of affairs.

Cleaning up after the holidays

We’re still waiting for the 2.6.24 release, which seems likely to come out near the end of the month - just before linux.conf.au. While waiting, I’ve gone through and made a large number of small updates throughout the forecast pages. The development kernel is at 2.6.24-rc8 - probably the last -rc for 2.6.24. I’ve tweaked other version numbers where appropriate, added links to stories, etc.

I also cleaned up a substantial number of rather embarrassing typos. I’m really not illiterate, honest.

Another Billion Dollar Open Source Deal - Congratulations MySQL

Congratulations to all my friends at MySQL. This weeks acquisition by Sun Microsystems has once again validated the high value of open source as competitive strategy. In the financial markets we ended 2007 with SCO quietly being delisted from NASDAQ on December 27th and started the year just two weeks later with a Billion dollar acquisition of an open source software company. There is a lesson to be learned there.

Happy New Year from the Linux Foundation! It’s been an exciting and busy first year for the organization. In the last year we focused on promoting, protecting and standardizing the Linux platform. We’ve seen Linux continue to expand with growth in the server, desktop and mobile areas.
