Linux Kernel 2.6.24 Released


The latest stable version of the Linux kernel 2.6.24 has just been released. Release notes below:


Date Thu, 24 Jan 2008 15:17:19 -0800 (PST)
From Linus Torvalds
Subject Linux 2.6.24

The release is out there (both git trees and as tarballs/patches), and for
the next week many kernel developers will be at (or flying into/out of)
LCA in Melbourne, so let’s hope it’s a good one.

Nothing earth-shattering happened since -rc8, although the new set of ACPI
blacklist entries and some network driver updates makes the diffstat show
that there was more than the random sprinkling of one-liners all over the

But most of it really is one-liners, and mostly not very exciting ones at

The appended shortlog is obviously just the changes from -rc8, if you want
the full ChangeLog (all 5.8MB of it) from 2.6.23 it’s available in the
usual places.
