Alpine Linux 3.4.4 Is Out, Ships with Linux Kernel 4.4.22 LTS, OpenSSL Patches

Alpine Linux 3.4.4 is out as the most advanced version, powered by the recently released, long-term supported Linux 4.4.22 kernel and bringing up-to-date components to make your Alpine Linux-based server(s) more stable and reliable than ever. Most of the core components have been updated, but the most important one is OpenSSL 1.0.2j, which received the latest security fixes, just like in the rest of the GNU/Linux distros. On the other hand, the alpine-conf file has been improved a little bit to no longer use local in the global scope, and it now includes a missing patch. Moreover, the busybox-initscripts now offers support for Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) search domains, and the Raspberry Pi kernel (linux-rpi) features dual mode USB OTG (On-The-Go) support.
