It has been a long time since the 2nd edition of Linux Device Drivers (LDD) was released. A very good book for newbies and practitioners for 2.4 kernel development. Thanks to O'Reilly, there has also been an online version of the book.
And now, there is this announcement from O'Reilly about the third edition, apparently focused on the 2.6.10 kernel.
The authors will have some task to do, though. Following the new kernel development model, the 2.6 kernel is expected to change much more often than the 2.4. I wonder how applicable will the book be to the different kernels in the 2.6 release.
And ofcourse, will it be available online?
