Further details about the 2.6 update can be found at
The Linux used in the iCOBI recorders has been updated to Linux 2.6

In addition to being a more current version, Linux 2.6 generally performs better and allows use of a much more modern Java Virtual Machine (JVM). The new JVM is Java 1.7 compliant and has proven to be more stable than earlier JVMs. So among other things, you can expect overall reliability improvements.

The transitional update posted here is installed on top of a system currently running Linux 2.4. It is quite large, since it contains portions of Linux 2.4 (so it can run enough to install) as well as the complete Linux 2.6 installation. All further Linux updates will be based on Linux 2.6, and will be considerably smaller.
