Linus Torvalds announced the release of the 2.6.17 Linux kernel this past weekend, following the previous stable kernel release by three months [story]. He noted, "not a lot of changes since the last -rc, the bulk is actually some last-minute MIPS updates and s390 futex changes, the rest tend to be various very small fixes that trickled in over the last week. Have fun with it". The latest kernel source can be downloaded from your nearest Linux Kernel Archivemirror [story]. You can browse through all the changes using thegitweb interface.
