I think the latest 2.6.x kernels are working quite well. There are two
"branches" currently, one the standard 2.6.10 kernel (with the stuff
that enables you to use jack as a normal user) and the more experimental
ones that use the latest Ingo's realtime preempt patches[*]. The later
is not so stable, in the sense that some people have problems booting
into it. If it works in your hardware then it is very good in terms of
latency performance, I'd say better than 2.4.x. 

Maybe others in the list can commnent about their experiences.

I don't understand... announcements about what is in the pipeline? A
separate announcements list? Could you be more specific?
