Arch Linux 2017.10.01 ISO Snapshot Is First to Be Powered by Linux Kernel 4.13

The latest kernel version available for installation from the Arch Linux repos is Linux 4.13.4, while the recently released Linux 4.13.5 kernel is already in the “Testing” repository. The good news is that with every new Linux kernel release, chances are your unsupported hardware will now be supported in Arch Linux.
