We Welcome RC4

Today, Linus released RC4 for the next 2.6.22 kernel release. It's getting stabilized and no major changes there, except for patch-checking script. In this RC4, ALSA project has committed ALSA 1.0.14, which means the next final kernel will include the latest version of ALSA. Some developers had also fixed some problems that is related with ALSA sub system. Look LWN Article for human readable changelog, or long format Changelog (quite fuzzy) or wait for updates in KernelNewbies. If no big regression occurred after this release, i'm quite confident that the final kernel release will be available at the end of this month (meaning this is the last RC) or perhaps beginning of next month (meaning there's one more RC before the final version, just to make sure everything worked as expected).
