.2.6.27 on intrepid.

The Ubuntu Kernel Team is planning to move to the 2.6.27 kernel for the
upcoming Intrepid Ibex 8.10 release.

You can either install the linux-image-2.6.27-* package (currently available for testing),
or wait for the upcoming Alpha 5 (to be released Thursday September 4) for Intrepid, which will contain the 2.6.27 kernel.

Feedback will be apreciated.

.intrepid alpha 4.

Major bug fixes + *the _cool_ stuff*.
... Such as:
## # 1

## 1.0
# A location for _human_ users to securely store data using filesystem encryption.
# ~/Private directory, permissions maintained at 700.
# Mount cryptographically (ecryptfs) on top of ~/.Private (also permission 700).
## 1.1
# Hook PAM to use login password to unwrap a mount passphrase.
# Automatically mount and unmount ~/Private on login (console, ssh, gnupg, desktop, etc).

## # 2
## 2.0
# A temporary password-less user account with restricted privileges (the so-called\
# "guest account").
# Comfortably for a quick sharing of your desktop/laptop (an email check, a surf station for guests, etc).

## # 3
## 3.0
# Network Manager 0.7.x, which will work with any card that properly supports wireless extensions.
## 3.1
# New (management) features: PPP and PPPOE connections, routes for devices, static IP configurations, 3G connections, system wide settings - no\ # log in needed in order to get a connection, and also multiple active devices.

Oh, and 2.6.26-5.15 kernel : ).
