You really lag a bit behind here. ;) 

To quickly get you almost up to date I would recommend Lee Revell's
paper from the LAC 2006. Generally a stock 2.6 kernel now provides
reasonable latency for many day-to-day audio work scenarios. I run
stock kernels since about 2.6.16 (also because I became lazy and
didn't want to follow the sometimes unstable RT-kernels) and it's
more than enough for me.
