The last version of this old and stable Linux kernel, 2.6.34.15, has been announced by Paul Gortmaker.

This particular branch of the Linux kernel hadn't registered much activity lately, but a new update has been released, marking the last release.

“I'm announcing the release of the 2.6.34.15 kernel. All 2.6.34 users are strongly encouraged to update. Please also note that this is the final release on the 2.6.34 line. So you really need to start thinking about deploying your upgrade plan. The 2.6.34 is EOL.

“The updated 2.6.34.y git tree can be found at: git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-stable.git linux-2.6.34.y and can be browsed at the normal kernel.org git web browser: http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-stable.git;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/linux-2.6.34.y,” said Paul Gortmaker in the email announcement.

If you are using any of the versions released until now in this branch you should consider moving upwards, preferably to a kernel that starts with 3.x.

A complete list of commits in this branch of the kernel can be found in the official announcement. Download Linux kernel 2.6.34.15 right now from Softpedia.
