Linux 2.6.30

Tux, the Linux mascotThe short verion of this post is that Linus has released Linux 2.6.30 after three months. A long awaited release for owner of a R6xx/R7xx chipset and I’m one of them. The compiler is go and hopefully I have an accelerated videocard before the end to day. So I’m not going to wait until it hits Debian Unstable.

The long version can be found at kernelnewbie.org and I must say the new kernel contains some nice new features. Maybe even a killer for Dtrace and ZFS.
