Linux kernel 2.6.30 has been released

The release announcement from Linus Torvalds was made this morning. You can look here at the release notes:

Linux kernel 2.6.30

Obviously this will take a while to filter down into your favourite distro, but you can get the source and compile it yourself if you fancy trying out the latest and greatest.

There are the usual improvements to hardware support, which could well help get that weird piece of hardware working. They have also started to use other forms of compression for the kernel files which include bzip2 and the boot speed of the kernel has been improved by implementing parallelism on certain parts of the kernel boot.
