Linux kernel 2.6.26-rc1 is out

Linus has released 2.6.26-rc1 yesterday. Here rc1 means this is the first "release candidate" for 2.6.26, and the merge window is now closed, so for the next two months or so before final 2.6.26 release only bugfixes will be accepted.

And I just can't resist the temptation to post my new favorite image here, so you can enjoy it too:

The majority of these 299 changesets that made it to 2.6.26-rc1 is about network namespaces.
