   \frametitle{The future of the PREEMPT\_RT patchset}
-  \item July 2014 status: the project is stalled because of lack
-	of funding. Thomas Gleixner is still the maintainer but
-	lacks time for further development and mainlining efforts.
-	He must work on other topics that pay the bills!
-  \item December 2014: the latest release is 3.14.10-rt7 (while
-	mainline is 3.18).
-  \item Contact (and contract) Thomas if you need further
-	features and support for newer kernels.
-  \item See \url{http://lwn.net/Articles/604695/}
+  \item Before Oct. 2015: project stalled because of the lack of funding.
+        Thomas Gleixner still the maintainer but lacked time for further
+        development and mainlining efforts. Patch releases only made
+        for specific kernel releases.
+  \item Oct. 2015: the Linux Foundation at last got funding
+        for mainlining the patchset into the Linux kernel (see
+        \url{http://lwn.net/Articles/659193/}).
+  \item There's at last a good chance for the patchset to be merged
+        by the end of 2016.
