Phoronix: Linux 2.6.32 Kernel Released
Just as planned, Linux 2.6.32-rc8 was the last test release and the final Linux 2.6.32 kernel is now available as of last night. The Linux 2.6.32 kernel brings improvements to the Btrfs file-system, ATI R600/700 KMS + 3D support, Intel DRM improvements (improved power management), other DRM changes, VGA Arbitration, virtualization improvements, and much more.
