Arch Linux 2016.09.03 Ships with Kernel 4.7.2, Available to Download Now

So there you have it, Arch Linux 2016.09.03 is out, and it brings with it all the latest software versions and security patches that have been pushed to the distro’s official repositories since August 1, 2016, when the previous ISO image was announced, namely Arch Linux 2016.08.01. Another exciting thing implemented in the Arch Linux 2016.09.03 ISO is the latest Linux 4.7.2 kernel (actually Linux kernel 4.7.3 is now the most advanced release announced on September 7, 2016), but the switch to the Linux 4.7 branch was made in the second week of August, on the 11th.
