Following two months after the release of the 2.6.9 Zonked Quokka Linux kernel [story], Linux creator Linus Torvalds released Woozy Numbat, the 2.6.10 kernel. He summarizes:

"Ok, with a lot of people taking an xmas break, here's something to play with over the holidays (not to mention an excuse for me to get into the Glögg for real ;)

"Mostly a lot of small fixes since 2.6.10-rc3, with the biggest thing being probably the CIFS update and the switch-over to the new DVB frontend driver world order. Some MMC and USB work too, and ARM updates as usual."

Further information can be found in the release announcements for 2.6.10-rc1 [story], 2.6.10-rc2 [story], and 2.6.10-rc3 [story], as well as in the complete changelog. The latest version of the kernel can be downloaded from your nearest kernel.org mirror. Read on for the list of changes since 2.6.10-rc3
