Arch Linux 2017.08.01 Available to Download as First ISO Powered by Linux 4.12

Arch Linux 2017.08.01 has been released, and it’s now available for download if you want to reinstall your Arch Linux OS for various reasons or deploy the GNU/Linux distribution on new PCs without going through all the hustle of download hundreds of updates from the official repositories after the installation. And if you’re wondering what’s included in the Arch Linux 2017.08.01 ISO snapshot, we can tell you that it’s the first to be powered by a kernel from the latest Linux 4.12 series, specifically Linux kernel 4.12.3, though Linux kernel 4.12.4 is already in the stable repos and Linux kernel 4.12.5 should be there too soon.
