Linux kernel 2.6.35 released
Nearly eleven weeks after the release of Linux 2.6.4, Linus Torvalds has released Linux 2.6.35. It supports many power management features offered by Radeon graphics chips and the Intel-Ironlake driver's H.264 decoding feature. Other changes include network code optimisations for multi-core processors and support turbo features offered by modern processors, allowing the new kernel to function significantly faster.
As always, many new or extended drivers also improve the hardware support. The Kernel Log on The H offers an overview of all of these innovations and looks at the forecast for the next Linux version, 2.6.36, expected in October; this completes The H's in-depth coverage of the development of 2.6.35.
