Gmane
From: Greg KH <gregkh <at> suse.de>
Subject: Linux 2.6.27.57
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Thursday 9th December 2010 22:49:02 UTC (over 6 years ago)
I'm announcing the release of the 2.6.27.57 kernel.

All users of the 2.6.27 kernel series must upgrade.

Note, this is my LAST release of the 2.6.27 kernel series.  I will be
passing this on to someone else, but I can't guarantee any release cycle
of it anymore, that is up to the new maintainer, not I.  Also note that
I can't help out with any .27 kernel bugs anymore either as I will be
officially retiring my only .27 machine now as well.

It was a good run, encompasing 57 releases, over 791 days, and included
1596 patches (not the largest of any stable release series, .32 has that
beat already).

Speaking of .32, I'd _strongly_ encourage all existing .27 users to
seriously look into migrating to the .32 kernel tree at this point in
time as well.

The updated 2.6.27.y git tree can be found at:
        git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-2.6.27.y.git
and can be browsed at the normal kernel.org git web browser:
        http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-2.6.27.y.git;a=summary

Also, this is the last .27 release in the stable/ directory, all future
ones will be in the longterm/ directory, so please anticipate that for
any scripts you might have in place right now.

thanks,

greg k-h
