Linux Kernel 4.4 LTS to Be Released on January 10, 2016, Says Linus Torvalds

According to Mr. Torvalds, Linux kernel 4.4 LTS Release Candidate 8 is the last milestone before the final version, which should arrive next weekend, on January 10, 2016. It’s an even smaller build when compared with the previous RC, bringing updates to several drivers, mostly network stuff, architecture improvements, especially for ARM and SPARC, general networking changes, as well as a few crypto fixes.
