Actually, Arch Linux's stable kernel was updated to version 3.10.2 (the recently released 3.10.3 version is expected this weekend), which was officially announced by the famous Greg Kroah-Hartman on July 21, 2013, as reported by Softpedia. Announced by Linus Torvalds on June 30, 2013, Linux kernel 3.10 brings various attractive features, among which we can mention Bcache for SSD drives, smaller extents support for the Btrfs filesystem, metadata checksums for the XFS filesystem, semaphores scalability enhancements, or MIPS KVM support. Arch Linux users can safely upgrade their healthy installations to the brand-new Linux kernel 3.10 today. The first ISO images of Arch Linux with Linux kernel 3.10 on-board will be published next Thursday, on August 1, 2013.
