It is finally here! The first point release of the Linux 4.4 LTS kernel series, which was announced by Linus Torvalds on January 10, 2016, arrives today for GNU/Linux distributions that already adopted it.
For any NVIDIA Tegra users out there, a ton of exciting support work is finally being mainlined with the Linux 4.5 kernel.
With the Linux 4.5 kernel the ARMv6/ARMv7 platforms are now multi-platform after five years of work. Olof Johansson sent in all of the ARM SoC updates for the Linux 4.5 merge window on Friday night. Most significant is the ARM multi-platform code update.
Just a few minutes ago, on January 5, 2016, Canonical published several Ubuntu Security Notices to inform Ubuntu users about the availability of new Linux kernel versions for their operating systems.
Immediately after announcing the availability of new kernel updates for all supported Ubuntu OSes, Canonical published another Ubuntu security notice to inform users about the release of another patch for the Linux kernel packages of Ubuntu 15.10 for Raspberry Pi 2.
Immediately after informing GNU/Linux users about the release of Linux kernel 4.3.1, Linux kernel 4.2.7, and Linux kernel 4.1.14 LTS, Greg Kroah-Hartman published details about the fifty-eighth maintenance version of the long-term supported Linux 3.14 kernel.
After announcing the release of Linux kernel 4.3.1 and Linux kernel 4.2.7, renowned kernel maintainer Greg Kroah-Hartman had the pleasure of releasing the fourteen maintenance build of the long-term supported Linux 4.1 kernel.
Immediately after announcing the release of the first maintenance build of Linux kernel 4.3, renowned Linux kernel developer Greg Kroah-Hartman published details about the seventh point release of Linux kernel 4.2.
The development team behind the first Debian-based Linux distribution, Raspbian, which was designed from the ground up to support the Raspberry Pi single-board computer (SBC) series, has announced the availability of Raspbian 2015-11-21.
Canonical's Michael Vogt informs us about the release and immediate availability for download of the tenth image of the stable Snappy Ubuntu Core 15.04 operating system for embedded and IoT (Internet of Things) devices.
A few minutes ago, Greg Kroah-Hartman informed users about the immediate availability for download of new kernel maintenance releases, Linux kernel 4.1.13 LTS, Linux kernel 4.2.6, Linux kernel 3.14.57 LTS, and Linux kernel 3.10.93 LTS.
So it *felt* like the last week of the rc series was busy, to the point where I got a bit worried about the release. But doing the actual numbers shows that that really was just my subjective feeling, probably due to the kernel summit and travel back home from Korea. It wasn’t actually a particularly busy week, it’s just that the pull requests were more noticeable in the last couple of days.
After announcing the immediate availability for download of Linux kernel 4.2.4, Linux kernel 4.1.11 LTS, and Linux kernel 3.14.55 LTS, Greg Kroah-Hartman has had the great pleasure of releasing a new maintenance version of Linux kernel 3.10 LTS.
After announcing the release of Linux kernel 4.2.4, which is currently the most advanced stable kernel version available, Greg Kroah-Hartman informs us about the immediate availability for download of the eleventh maintenance release of the long-term supported Linux 4.1 kernel series.
After announcing the release of Linux kernel 4.2.2, Greg Kroah-Hartman has informed users of the Linux 4.1 LTS kernel branch that the ninth maintenance version is now available for download, urging them to update as soon as possible.
On September 29, renowned kernel developer and maintainer of several Linux branches Greg Kroah-Hartman had the pleasure of announcing the immediate availability for download of the second point of Linux kernel 4.2.
After announcing the release of Linux kernel 4.1.7 LTS, Greg Kroah-Hartman, a renowned Linux kernel developer that currently maintains several LTS (Long-Term Support) branches of the Linux kernel, a core component of any GNU/Linux operating system, announced the release of Linux kernel 3.14.52 LTS.
On September 13, Greg Kroah-Hartman, a renowned kernel maintainer, had the pleasure of announcing the immediate availability for download of the seventh point release of the Linux 4.1 LTS kernel series, immediately after releasing Linux kernel 3.14.52 LTS.
Already mailed in for the Linux 4.3 kernel merge window this week were the numerous ARM SoC updates while being sent in over the night were the ARM64/AArch64 architectural changes for this next version of the Linux kernel.
The ARM SoC changes are just the latest pull request of what's already shaping up to be another exciting kernel cycle. With the ARM SoC pull request sent in by Olof Johansson for the Linux 4.3 kernel on the kernel mailing list here are some highlights:
