Subject: Linux 2.6.29
From: Linus Torvalds <torvalds () linux-foundation ! org>

It's out there now, or at least in the process of getting mirrored out.

The most obvious change is the (temporary) change of logo to Tuz, the
Tasmanian Devil. But there's a number of driver updates and some m68k
header updates (fixing headers_install after the merge of non-MMU/MMU)
that end up being pretty noticeable in the diffs.

The shortlog (from -rc8, obviously - the full logs from 2.6.28 are too big
to even contemplate attaching here) is appended, and most of the non-logo
changes really shouldn't be all that noticeable to most people. Nothing
really exciting, although I admit to fleetingly considering another -rc
series just because the changes are bigger than I would have wished for
this late in the game. But there was little point in holding off the real
release any longer, I feel.

This obviously starts the merge window for 2.6.30, although as usual, I'll
probably wait a day or two before I start actively merging. I do that in
order to hopefully result in people testing the final plain 2.6.29 a bit
more before all the crazy changes start up again.
