Not that i know of, but i've been told, they are not far away. Besides the fact, that
2.4.1 survived the first round of stress-testing just fine, it seems to work OK for
me, although i did not yet try lots of new features ( netfilters, devFS and the like ). In addition,
my system only has disks and networking, nothing else ( runs of a serial console ),. so
take my comments with a grain of salt.
OTOH, i really like some of the new features in the kernel.
I'll pass a few releases of the first Ext-3/2.4.x combo, before i try. But it's definitely
good news, that the journalling logic and the FS core seems to be in good shape.
