The latest stable version of the Linux kernel is:          2.4.17
The latest prepatch for the stable Linux kernel tree is:   2.4.18-pre1
The latest beta version of the Linux kernel is:            2.5.1
The latest prepatch for the beta Linux kernel tree is:     2.5.2-pre2
The latest -ac patch to the stable Linux kernels is:       2.4.13-ac8
[zork(~)] finger -l @kernel.org
