As of this morning rhea was delivered another 38 updates. Updates have been arriving on a regular basis, far more than just 38 at times. But today, as I was perusing the release notes for some of the items updated (on the Changes tab on Update Manager) I came across this cute little listing for the kernel updates (to 2.6.25-15.27):
[Alan Stern]Since there is no change number involved I can't dig into the details, but I sure would like to know what "SCO workaround" really means. I would have liked to have a SCO workaround years ago. I think the whole world would have liked a SCO workaround.
* usb-storage: don't access beyond the end of the sg buffer
- LP: #204922
* Enable Reset and SCO workaround on Dell 410 BT adapter
* Enable CONFIG_E1000 in the i386 virtual image.
- LP: #205646
* x86: tsc prevent time going backwards
* Fix framebuffer fonts on non-x86 platforms
What's also of interest is the version numbers on the current crop of Gnome updates. Many are sporting 2.22.1 version numbers, while the updates to Nautilus sports a version of 2.22.2. These are indeed new upstream versions. The current overall Gnome version number (via System | About Gnme) is 2.22.0. So I'm curious what version of Gnome that 8.04 will officially ship with.
