Linux Kernel 3.14 LTS Is About to Reach End of Life, Update 3.14.78 Out Now

Linux kernel 3.14.78 LTS is the seventy-eighth maintenance update to the long-term supported Linux 3.14 kernel series, which appears to approach its end of life soon, according to Greg Kroah-Hartman, who states “The 3.14.y kernel series is coming to an end. There will be only one more release after this one, of this kernel series before it will be marked as end-of-life. You have been warned.” So there you have it, the Linux 3.14 LTS kernel branch is finally coming to an end, and you’ll have to decide sooner or later to which new long-term supported kernel series to upgrade, because after the last maintenance update is released, which should happen before the end of the month, there won’t be any other patches and security fixes released for Linux kernel 3.14 LTS.
