The Future Of The 2.4 Stable Kernel
Anonymous Reader writes "2.4 stable kernel maintainer Marcelo Tosatti recently announced his future plans for the stable 2.4 kernel. Acknowledging the pending release of the new stable 2.6 kernel, Marcelo explains that we will see only one final round of major fixes in 2.4, after which this kernel will go into maintenance mode. Following the future release of the 2.4.24 kernel, only critical patches and security fixes will be merged."
