The "Development Stream" pages will be updated occasionally with descriptions of features already integrated into upstream kernel and also patches with descriptions for functionality soon to be submitted for upstream integration.

The contributions from the Linux on System z development team to Linux on System z distribution releases (mostly retrofits from the "Development Stream") will be documented on these "Distribution Hints" pages shortly after the distribution release are generally available. Besides documenting bugfixes, the focus for these hints will be on mapping the new features in the distributions against the "Development Stream" documentation.

Please refer to IBM tested Linux environments to see the IBM support for your distribution.
