Funky Moves: Linux Kernel v2.6.29 released!

March 24th, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

Linux Torvalds has just released Linux Kernel 2.6.29, amongst the highlights for this release include:

Linux 2.6.29 adds kernel based graphic mode setting, WiMAX support, Access Point support in the wifi stack, the inclusion of the btrfs and squashfs filesystems, ecryptfs filename encryption, ext4 no journaling mode, ocfs2 metadata checksums, a more scalable RCU implementation, filesystem freeze support, swap management in the memory controller, many new drivers and many other improvements.

Unfortunately the Linux Kernel Newbies site is still being edited for the .29 release, so you’ll have to checkout the release notes or the changelog for 2.6.29 for now and if your game, download the source and build.
