Linus Torvalds has released version 2.6.32 of the Linux kernel. Like it's predecessors, the Linux main development line brings thousands of improvements to the new kernel release such as KMS (kernel-based mode setting), 3D support for series 2000, 3000 and 4000 Radeon graphics card and KSM (Kernel shared memory or kernel samepage merging) which reduces memory use when running identical virtual machines. Devtmpfs allows for booting without Udev and lets the Linux kernel run faster.

Detailed information on these and the other important new features of Linux 2.6.32 are available in an in-depth article on The H Open - What's new in Linux 2.6.32.
