Linux Kernel 5.2 Reached End of Life, Users Urged to Upgrade to Linux Kernel 5.3

Released in early July 2019, the Linux 5.2 kernel series brought various new features and enhancements, among which we can mention an open-source firmware to support DSP audio devices, support for case-insensitive names in the EXT4 file system, a new file system mount API, better resource monitoring for Android devices, as well as new open-source GPU drivers for ARM Mali devices. But, as all good things must come to an end, the Linux 5.2 kernel has now reached end of life with the 5.2.21 maintenance update released by Greg Kroah-Hartman last week. Therefore, users are now urged to update their Linux systems to a more recent Linux kernel series, specifically Linux kernel 5.3.
