Linux Measures to support the power saving mechanisms of AMD graphics chips, network code optimizations for multi-core processors, features for de-fragmenting the working memory and an improved support of the power management and turbo features offered by modern processors are among the highlights of the new kernel version. After a development time of almost two-and-a-half months, Linus Torvalds has released version 2.6.35 of the Linux kernel.

I thought they managed to stop ath5k (used in asus eee 900 at least) from sucking in Karmic, but it appears they have managed to *double* the throughput in some (high noise?) tests now.

Yes. I meant that ath5k stopped sucking in Karmic, but it seems now it *really* stopped sucking.
