Marcelo Tosatti has released Linux kernel 2.4.25-pre4. Marcelo released this as 2.4.25-pre4 because this prerelease is continuing with things that was merged into the 2.4.24-pre tree, as 2.4.24 [story] was a security release.
From: Marcelo Tosatti To: linux-kernel Subject: Linux 2.4.25-pre4 Date: Tue, 6 Jan 2004 12:14:23 -0200 (BRST) Hi, Moving on with the 2.4.24-pre tree, here is 2.4.25-pre4. It contains an ext2/3 update (mostly forward compatibility related), the usual architecture updates (this time S390, PPC64/32, SH), osst update, TG3 bugfixes, amongst others. Some of the fixes listed in this changelog (the rtc fixes, the IrDA "log buster" fix and the netfilter MASQUERADE oops) were already in other -pre's, they got removed and re added for technical BK reasons.
