Linux Kernel 2.6.39 Resmi Dirilis

Tanggal 19 Mei 2011 kemarin, kernel Linux 2.6.39 telah resmi dirilis.

Di antara fitur-fitur terbaru yang disertakan dalam kernel Linux 2.6.39, kita dapat menyebutkan driver baru untuk kartu grafis high-end AMD, ipsets untuk menyederhanakan pemeliharaan firewall dan implementasi, peningkatan filesystem EXT4, driver baru untuk mendukung hardware yang lebih baik, dan banyak perbaikan bug.

Berikut ini pernyataan dari Linus Torvalds dalam official announcement.

“So it’s delayed a few days, and I really was struggling with the decision of whether I wanted to cut a final release at all: it could easily have made more sense to just do an -rc8.”

“However, since I’m going to be at LinuxCon Japan in two weeks, the choice for me ended up whether I should just release, or drag it out *three* more weeks, or have some really messy merge window with a break in between.”
