Linus Torvalds has put out the eighth release candidate for the Linux 2.6.33 kernel and it will hopefully serve as the last test build before an official release is made. The Linux 2.6.33-rc8 kernel consists of bug-fixes and resolution of regressions introduced earlier into this kernel development cycle the past few months. Worth noting is that there are also more kernel mode-setting / DRM changes that worked its way in at the last minute.

The Linux 2.6.33-rc8 kernel release announcement can be found at LKML.org. The latest daily benchmarks of the upstream Linux kernel can be found on our Phoromatic Kernel Tracker.
