Linus Torvalds announced the release of the 2.6.19 Linux kernel, following the previous stable kernel release by two months [story]. "It's one of those rare 'perfect' kernels," Linus joked, "so if it doesn't happen to compile with your config (or it does compile, but then does unspeakable acts of perversion with your pet dachshund), you can rest easy knowing that it's all your own d*mn fault, and you should just fix your evil ways." He went on to add, "you could send me and the kernel mailing list a note about it anyway, of course. (And perhaps pictures, if your dachshund is involved. Not that we'd be interested, of course. No. Just so that we'd know to avoid it next time)."
The latest kernel source can be downloaded from your nearest Linux Kernel archive mirror [story]. You can browse through all the changes using the gitweb interface. Kernel Newbiews also maintains a useful summary of all the changes that went into this new version of the Linux kernel, including the inclusion of three new filesystems, GFS2, ext4 [story], and eCryptfs.
