Here it is! The Linux Kernel 2.6.19! Here's a brief overview of whats new/ updated (via KernelNewbies/ LinuxChanges)
Linux 2.6.19 includes the clustering GFS2 filesystem ; Ecryptfs; the first experimental version of EXT4 (aimed at developers), support for the Atmel AVR32 architecture, sleepable RCU, improvements for NUMA-based systems, a "-o flush" mount option aimed at FAT-based hotpluggable media devices (mp3), physical CPU hotplug and memory hot-add in x86-64, support for compiling x86 kernels with the GCC stack protection, vectored async I/O, Netlabel subsystem, allow to disable compilation of the block layer, IDE Parallel-ATA drivers based in libata, Granular IPSec associations for use in MLS environments, add the Netlabel subsystem, Mobile IPv6 (RFC 3775), some new drivers, improved support for many already existing drivers, and many other things.
w00t. Well, read the full Release Annoucement by Linux Torvalds himself @ LKML (Linux Kernel Mailing List) or check up on the full list of changes @ LinuxChanges.

Quote from the Release Annoucement:
So go get it. It's one of those rare "perfect" kernels. So if it doesn't
happen to compile with your config (or it does compile, but then does
unspeakable acts of perversion with your pet dachshund), you can rest easy
knowing that it's all your own d*mn fault, and you should just fix your
evil ways.
