David Weinehall [interview] has released the 2.0.40 kernel, also known as "The Moss-covered Tortoise". This is the first stable release of the 2.0 kernel since 2.0.39 was released over three years ago in January of 2001 [story]. David explains:

"This release fixes several remote information-leaks, a few local exploits, possible group descriptor corruption for ext2fs, a few network related issues, a few SUS/LSB compliance issues, and various other minor changes. A complete changelog can be found at the same places the kernel itself can be downloaded."

Download a copy of the 2.0.40 stable kernel and changelog from a local kernel.org mirror. Read on for David's full email, further discussing why you might want to upgrade.
