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.
Normally, this would be the start of the 2.6.25 merge window. That will still be the case, but Linus’s travel (and that of many other kernel developers) will likely slow the process a bit. Once things get going I’ll update the pages to reflect the shape of this kernel and what might come afterward.
