Believe it or not, Linux kernel 4.8.14 is here only two days after the December 8 release of Linux kernel 4.8.13, which wasn't a big patch. However, it looks like today's update brings some more improvements, and, according to the appended shortlog and the diff since the previous version, it changes a total of 56 files, with 388 insertions and 164 deletions. Linux kernel 4.8.14 is all about networking improvements, as it updates the networking stack with a bunch of changes and fixes to the Datagram Congestion Control Protocol (DCCP), Distributed Switch Architecture (DSA), IPv4, IPv6, Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP), Netlink, packet scheduler, and Transparent Inter-process Communication (TIPC) implementations.
