Can someone explain to me how kernel version numbers work nowadays?
When I started using Linux, it was simple: an odd minor version number indicated a development kernel and an even one a production kernel. But the kernel has been stuck at 2.26 for ages. Is there a 2.27 under development? Or does it now go by patch number?
I notice that patch numbers are usually even, but not always. Crux is currently using 2.26.35.
