LINUX 26.2.6


Science & Technology

A lot of people are wondering what's so great about 26.2.6 compared to the current version they're using. It's actually a lot of little changes in stability and support combined together.

Here's a small refined list of what the new Linux offers: Support for read-only bind mounts, x86 PAT (Page Attribute Tables), PCI Express ASPM (Active State Power Management), ports of KVM to IA64, S390 and PPC, other KVM improvements including basic paravirtualization support, preliminar support of the future 802.11s wireless mesh standard.

Also included is a much improved webcam support thanks to a driver for UVC devices, a built-in memory tester, a kernel debugger, BDI statistics and parameters exposure in /sys/class/bdi, a new /proc/PID/mountinfo file for more accurate information about mounts, per-process securebits, device white-list for containers users, support for the OLPC, and even some new drivers.
