Some of you have noticed that the last update was released 7 months ago. This is long, but these days, very few of the issues reported on 2.6 also affect 2.4, so basically the number of bug reports on 2.4 fades out quite fast.
So I'm releasing 126.96.36.199 here. If nothing happens before September 2011, it's possible that there won't be any 188.8.131.52 at all. By that time, the 2.6 kernel will have been available for almost 8 years, this should have been enough for anyone to have a look at it. Users now have one year to migrate or to report critical bugs.
At one point, I envisaged to start a 2.4.38 with a bunch of updated drivers. Now I'd prefer that the users migrate to 2.6.
