A New Linux Kernel has been Released!
Linux v2.6.16 has been released according to the man himself… Linus Torvalds.
“Ok, it’s being mirrored out right now, the git tree should already be all there, the tar-file and patches are still uploading.
Not a lot of changes since -rc6, but there’s various random one-liners here and there (a number of Coverity bugs found, for example), and there are small MIPS and PowerPC updates.
Appended is the shortlog from 2.6.16-rc6, the full log (from 2.6.15) is on the web/ftp-sites.
It looks like both Fedora and SuSE end up using a kernel that is pretty close to this 2.6.16 release, so let’s all hope it’s good. Give it a good testing, please, Linus”
