Development work on the Linux 2.6.29 kernel had slowed down a bit due to Linux.Conf.Au taking place last week, but the third release candidate has now been issued. There's a variety of bug-fixes and minor updates through the Linux kernel in 2.6.29-rc3, but nothing particularly exciting. Catching our eyes were just a few DRM updates (small work on GEM and KMS) and just a variety of driver updates.
