With the final release of the Linux 2.6.24 kernel at the end of January, the first release candidate for Linux 2.6.25 is now out the door. With the long 2.6.24 development cycle, there is quite a few changes for the Linux 2.6.25 kernel and it includes 1.4 million lines of diffs which amounts to 11MB. Most of this work, however, boils down to architecture and driver updates. Of note in this release is the Intel video driver now working with suspend/resume natively, ACPI and other general suspend/resume changes, and many cleanups from the x86 merge. The release announcement for the Linux 2.6.25-rc1 kernel can be read at LKML.org.
