Linux 4.4 added support for a faster and leaner loop device, 3D support in virtual GPU driver, TCP improvements, various file systems improvements for BTRFS, EXT-4, CIFS, XFS etc… Some notable changes made to Linux 4.5 include:
Just a few minutes ago, kernel developer Greg Kroah-Hartman had the great pleasure of announcing the release and immediate availability for download of Linux kernel 4.4.5 LTS.
Immediately after announcing the release of Linux kernel 4.4.3 LTS and Linux kernel 3.10.98 LTS, Greg Kroah-Hartman informed the Linux community about the release of Linux kernel 3.14.62 LTS.
Greg Kroah-Hartman just announced earlier today, February 26, 2016, the general availability of the third maintenance release in the stable, long-term supported Linux 4.4 kernel series.
Dylan Callahan from the Chromium OS for Raspberry Pi 2 project today informs Softpedia, exclusively, about the immediate availability for download of the fourth release of their Chromium OS port for the popular SBC.
We reported earlier on the release of Linux kernel 4.1.18 LTS for GNU/Linux operating systems, as announced by Sasha Levin, but it looks like another kernel maintainer has posted news on the kernel mailing list about the release of Linux kernel 3.12.54 LTS.
Landing today in DRM-Next for eventual merging into the Linux 4.5 kernel source tree is the ARM HDLCD driver.
After announcing the release of Linux kernel 4.4.1 LTS, Linux kernel 3.10.96 LTS, and Linux kernel 3.14.60 LTS, renowned kernel maintainer Greg Kroah-Hartman has informed users about the seventeenth maintenance build of Linux kernel 4.1 LTS.
After announcing the release of Linux kernel 4.4.1 LTS and Linux kernel 3.10.96 LTS, kernel maintainer and developer Greg Kroah-Hartman has published some details about the availability of the sixtieth maintenance build of the Linux 3.14 LTS kernel series.
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.
This tutorial covers some aspects about compiling your own Linux kernel for your ARM device. Most Linux distributions for the PC/x86 platform maintain a Linux kernel which supports a broad range of hardware devices, so it has become very unlikely to compile your own kernel from source. For the ARM platform the Linux kernel is provided by the board or system on chip (SoC) manufacturer. In some cases these kernels include a minimal set of features and device drivers only.
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.
The Tiny Core developers have been happy to announce the release and immediate availability for download of the Tiny Core piCore 7.0 operating system, a special edition of Tiny Core Linux designed for Raspberry Pi single-board computers.
While the Tegra X1 is the latest and greatest NVIDIA SoC out there currently, the Tegra K1 is still a beauty and still blows many other ARM boards out of the water. If you happen to have a Tegra K1 Chromebook, it's possible to get Fedora 23 Linux running on there with a bit of hacking.
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.
A new Ubuntu MATE image for RP2 has been released - A new and refreshed Ubuntu MATE 15.10.1 image has been released for the Raspberry Pi 2 platform, bringing a number of changes and improvements.
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.
