Arch Linux Kicks Off 2018 with First Snapshot Powered by Linux Kernel 4.14 LTS

Arch Linux 2018.01.01 ISO snapshot is here, and it’s the first to use the latest Linux 4.14 LTS kernel. While December’s Arch Linux ISO snapshot was still powered by a kernel from the now deprecated Linux 4.13 series, January 2018’s release is using Linux kernel 4.14.9 for all new installs, while the recently released Linux kernel 4.14.10 is still in testing. So if you’ve planned on installing Arch Linux on your personal computer, now it’s a better time than ever to download and install one of the most acclaimed GNU/Linux distributions ever created. As expected, Arch Linux 2018.01.01 also includes all the latest security patches and software updates released during December 2017.
