2.6.31 Tracking

Linux 2.6.31 is now out. The H has an in-depth feature "The Next Round: The New Features of Linux 2.6.31" with all the details.

On this page, The H has tracked all the Linux Kernel 2.6.31 news; from announcements to details of what features and fixes are going in the next version of the Linux Kernel.

  • Kernel Log – Coming in 2.6.31 - Part 3: Storage and file systems
    Experimental file system Btrfs, billed as the "next generation file system for Linux", should now be even faster. Libata drivers for IDE/PATA adaptors are pushing aside the IDE subsystem. The first components for defragmenting Ext4 file systems have been merged into the main development tree. Systems with Intel ATA chip-sets now boot faster thanks to parallel hardware scanning.
  • The Next Round: The New Features of Linux 2.6.31
    The latest version of Linux offers a whole host of new features – for example a USB 3.0 infrastructure, drivers for the Sound Blaster X-Fi, KMS support for Radeon chips and improved versions of Btrfs and Ext4. However, as is traditional with new Linux versions in the main development branch, this is only the tip of the iceberg.
