The Linux kernel version 2.6.24 has been released and available for download. From the announcement:
The release is out there (both git trees and as tarballs/patches), and for the next week many kernel developers will be at (or flying into/out of) LCA in Melbourne, so let’s hope it’s a good one. Nothing earth-shattering happened since -rc8, although the new set of ACPI blacklist entries and some network driver updates makes the diffstat show that there was more than the random sprinkling of one-liners all over the tree.

This is good news for Linux. The Linux Driver Project is focused on creating and maintaining OpenSource Linux kernel drivers for all types of devices. This means hardware vendor might able to sell more devices to Linux users. This project is sponsored by Novell.
From the project home page:
We are a group of Linux kernel developers (over 100 strong) and project managers (over 10) that develop and maintain Linux kernel drivers. We work with the manufacturers of the specific device to specify, develop, submit to the main kernel, and maintain the kernel drivers. We are willing and able to sign NDAs with companies if they wish to keep their specifications closed, as long as we are able to create a proper GPLv2 Linux kernel driver as an end result.
