Most of the changes included in the Linux kernel 3.2.82 LTS release are updated drivers, and it looks like, this time, the kernel developers managed to improve those for ACPI, ATA, InfiniBand, Crypto, Radeon, MMC, MTD, PCI, s390, SCSI, TTY, USB, and Xen devices. Continuing, there are various enhancements to the x86 hardware architecture, as well as some small fixes to PowerPC (PPC), PA-RISC, MIPS, Alpha, and ARM. The Btrfs file system also received multiple improvements in Linux kernel 3.2.82 LTS, and there are some small changes for the CIFS, eCryptfs, EXT4, NFS, UBIFS, and NILFS2 filesystems as well. Moreover, a KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) issue was fixed, the sound stack got some improvements to PCI devices, and the networking stack has been updated with B.A.T.M.A.N. Advanced, IPv4, TIPC (Transparent Inter-Process Communication), and Reliable Datagram Sockets (RDS) changes.
