Due to LinuxCon Brazil there's been two weeks that have passed since the third release candidate was tagged for the Linux 2.6.36 kernel, but on Sunday afternoon Linus christened Linux 2.6.36-rc4.

As is usual for this stage in the kernel release/development cycle, Linux 2.6.36-rc4 is just meant to target regressions, including some bugs in the open-source graphics DRM stack, PCI Express and firmware interaction changes, OCFS2 updates, and various other items.

The Linux 2.6.36-rc4 kernel release announcement can be read at While catching a flight right now for the X Developers' Summit and then the one and only Oktoberfest, benchmarks of the latest 2.6.36 kernel code will continue to happen on a daily basis via Phoromatic and the Phoronix Test Suite.
