    Nearly twelve weeks after the release of Linux 2.6.35, Linus Torvalds has released Linux 2.6.36. The new version of the Linux kernel includes various performance enhancements and updates, the AppArmor security extension and support for the KDB-KMS-Debug-Shell. Other changes include a new Out-of-Memory (OOM) killer and kernel thread improvements. As always, many new or extended drivers improve the hardware support. Unlike most new kernel releases, many of the improvements in this version will be quite noticeable to end users. The Kernel Log on The H offers an overview of all of these innovations and looks at the forecast for the next Linux version, 2.6.37, expected early next year; this completes The H's in-depth coverage of the development of 2.6.36.[All of article]
