Linus Torvalds has released Linux 2.6.29.

The most obvious change is the (temporary) change of logo to Tuz, the Tasmanian Devil. But there's a number of driver updates and some m68k header updates (fixing headers_install after the merge of non-MMU/MMU) that end up being pretty noticeable in the diffs. The List Entry

The new features include the inclusion of Kernel Modesetting, Btrfs, Squashfs, Support of 4096 CPUs, "Tree RCU": scalable classic RCU, WiMAX, Wireless Access Point mode support, eCryptfs filename encryption, Filesystem freeze Memory controller swap management and other improvements, Ext4 no journal mode, OCFS2 metadata checksums,Staging drivers, and other features. Kernal Newbies.
