Stable kernel updates

Post Syndicated from ris original https://lwn.net/Articles/756650/rss

Stable kernels 4.16.14, 4.14.48, and 4.9.106 have been released. The 4.16 and 4.14
kernels contain the usual set of important fixes. “Not everyone who
uses 4.9 needs to upgrade here, it’s a big sync of the objtool codebase to
make future maintenance of 4.9.y easier over time, that’s all. But of
course, updating and verifying that nothing broke is always appreciated
🙂

Post Syndicated from ris original https://lwn.net/Articles/755670/rss

OpenSUSE Leap 15 has been released.
With a brand new look developed by the community, openSUSE Leap 15
brings plenty of community packages built on top of a core from SUSE Linux
Enterprise (SLE) 15 sources, with the two major releases being built in
parallel from the beginning for the first time. Leap 15 shares a common
core with SLE 15, which is due for release in the coming months. The first
release of Leap was version 42.1, and it was based on the first Service
Pack (SP1) of SLE 12. Three years later SUSE’s enterprise version and
openSUSE’s community version are now aligned at 15 with a fresh
rebase.
” Leap 15 will receive maintenance and security updates for
at least 3 years.
