Kernel log: X.org 7.5 coming in summer, re-write for Intel's graphics driver

,----[ Quote ]
| X.org 7.5 is scheduled to appear in summer, and could include a new Intel 
| graphics driver. The developers have slashed its code to boost reliability 
| and performance. The kernel developers have now presented versions 2.6.30-rc4 
| and of Linux, and are released and guest mascot 
| Tuz bows out.    



Kernel Log: What's coming in 2.6.30 - File systems: New and revamped file

,----[ Quote ]
| The patches adopted in Linux 2.6.30 introduce many significant changes
| affecting data security and Ext3 and Ext4 performance. Support for the EXOFS
| and NILFS2 file systems is new, as is the cache for the AFS and NFS network
| file systems. There are also a few fixes for the almost forgotten ReiserFS
| file system.

Exciting changes in the 2.6.30 Linux kernel

,----[ Quote ]
| Every Linux kernel release has interesting changes but 2.6.30 really stands
| out to me as having a lot of features I would like to take advantage. In
| 2.6.29 the only really great feature to me was the inclusion of barrier
| support for simple DM devices. It’s only 1 change but an important one in my
| opinion as it will allow an increase in either performance or reliability for
| LVM and dm-crypt devices. But 2.6.30 has a lot of changes that I am likely to
| take advantage of such as:
|     *  The addition of nilfs - I’ve tested nilfs and I am happy to see it
|     adopted. I’ve run into problems using it but would like to see it become
|     stable. It seems likely to beat btrfs as the first stable Linux disk
|     filesystem with snapshots.

Ext3 ‘data=guarded’ mode coming for Linux kernel 2.6.30?

,----[ Quote ]
| There were some patches from Theodore T’so - the Ext4 maintainer, Jens
| Axboe - the block layer maintainer, Chris Mason - the Btrfs developer et al.
| An overview of the discussion can be found at LWN.net, here.


Linux Supports More Filesystems With 2.6.30-rc1

,----[ Quote ]
| Two weeks have passed since the release of the Linux 2.6.29 kernel that
| brought Intel kernel mode-setting, the Btrfs file-system, and many other
| improvements to the Linux kernel. Now though the first release candidate for
| the forthcoming Linux 2.6.30 kernel is now out in the wild.


Kernel Log: Development of 2.6.30 is under way

,----[ Quote ]
| Shortly after the release of Linux 2.6.29 last Tuesday, the kernel subsystem
| developers began to prepare the first changes to be merged into the main
| development branch for Linux 2.6.30. This is usually done by sending a "Git
| pull request" – an email which includes the URL to a Git tree with the
| proposed changes as well as a diffstat and a list of individual patches – not
| only to Linus Torvalds, but usually also to the LKML (Linux Kernel Mailing
| List). Often, the maintainer of the subsystem starts the email with a short
| summary of the proposed changes, highlighting the most important ones, or
| putting the changes into context.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
