Looking a little closer at the changes included in Linux kernel 4.7.6, we can mention that there are various improvements to the ARM64 (AArch64), MIPS, and x86 hardware architectures, a couple of crypto changes, small updates to the GPU, I2C, InfiniBand, IRQ Chip, MTD, power, RTC, SoC, and networking (mostly Ethernet) drivers, some mm and core kernel fixes, and an updated networking stack with mac80211 and Ceph changes. Several filesystems received improvements as well in Linux kernel 4.7.6, among which we can mention XFS, Btrfs, Ceph, autofs4, HostFS, OCFS2, and ReiserFS. If you're using a GNU/Linux operating system powered by a kernel from the Linux 4.7 series, you are urged to update to version 4.7.6 as soon as possible.
