Linux Kernel 4.7.10 Is the Last in the Series, Users Need to Move to Linux 4.8

Yes, you’re reading that right, the Linux 4.7 kernel branch officially reached end of life, and it has already been marked as EOL on the kernel.org website, which means that the Linux kernel 4.7.10 maintenance update is the last one that will be released for this branch. It also means that you need to either update your system to Linux kernel 4.7.10 or move to a more recent kernel branch, such as Linux 4.8. If you’re still curious what’s new in Linux kernel 4.7.10, we can tell you right now that it adds various improvements to the EXT4, Btrfs, Debugfs, FUSE, and ReiserFS filesystems, a couple of changes to the ARC architecture and to the cryptography framework, and multiple updated drivers, in particular for Broadcom b43 and brcm80211 wireless drivers, as well as InfiniBand, CLK, SCSI, and TTY devices.
