Dear RT Folks,

I'm pleased to announce the 3.6.2-rt4 release. rt4 is just an update
to 3.6.2. The not announced 3.6.1-rt3 is an intermediate release with
a single change.

Changes since 3.6.1-rt2:

	* Remove the softirq noise printk

The delta patch against 3.6.1-rt2 is appended below and can be found here

  http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/projects/rt/3.6/incr/patch-3.6.1-rt2-rt3.patch.xz

The RT patch against 3.6.2 can be found here:

  http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/projects/rt/3.6/patch-3.6.2-rt4.patch.xz

The split quilt queue is available at:

  http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/projects/rt/3.6/patches-3.6.2-rt4.tar.xz

Enjoy,

	tglx
