The Linux 4.12.4 point release is now available for all users using the Linux 4.12 kernel series, but it seems that this is the last maintenance update to be issued for this branch, which is now marked as EOL (End of Life) on the kernel.org website and will no longer receive support. Therefore, all users using the Linux 4.12 kernel series are urged to upgrade to a newer kernel branch, such as Linux 4.13, which received its third maintenance update today. Of course, you can also choose to update to Linux kernel 4.12.4, but keep in mind that it's the last patch.
