"The maintainers of the Linux Stable Series have recently
released their Linux versions 18.104.22.168, 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199
– with the usual unspecific recommendation that the users of
non-distribution kernels should make sure they upgrade to the new
versions ("All users of the 2.6.xx kernel series are very strongly
encouraged to upgrade.").
"The new versions usually correct bugs and offer a number of
minor improvements. However, Linux 188.8.131.52 also includes some
changes that are uncommonly substantial for a stable kernel, as
Greg Kroah-Hartmanand points out in his review email. For instance,
apparently only now has the USB 3.0 support that was introduced
with 2.6.31 been made to run smoothly in 184.108.40.206; the developers
also modified some of the Wi-Fi, KVM and Xen drivers to a greater
extent than they usually do. The new version is said to allow
better I/O throughput rates for large servers."
