Torvalds releases Linux kernel update

A new test version of a delayed upgrade to the Linux operating system’s kernel was made available for downloading recently by Linux creator Linus Torvalds, raising hopes that the update could be nearing release.

In a posting to a mailing list devoted to Linux kernel development, Torvalds announced that he was releasing Version 2.4.0-test10 of the long-awaited Linux 2.4 kernel. The latest test release “has no known bugs that I consider showstoppers, for what it’s worth,” Torvalds wrote, adding that it’s “one of the final steps in a stable release.”
