First Arch Linux ISO with Linux Kernel 5.15 LTS Available for Download

Arch Linux 2021.12.01 is now available for download and it comes with Linux kernel 5.15 LTS by default. The ISO image includes Linux kernel 5.15.5, but it looks like Linux kernel 5.15.6 was also released today, so expect it to join the stable archives by the end of the week.

Apart from being an LTS (Long Term Support) series, which means that it will be supported for at least a couple of years, Linux kernel 5.15 introduces a brand-new and fully functional NTFS filesystem implementation, so you can finally manage your NTFS formatted drives the way you want.
