Upstream is fast than ever. Almost every week we have now kernel updates. Some weeks two in a row. Good news is. Linux314 is now LTS. We will use that kernel for our Manjaro 0.8.11 release. So which kernels do we have in line?

Canonical updates
Since some kernels are still relevant for Ubuntu, Canonical provides some extended stable supported kernels.

Luis Henriques has linux311 3.11.10.13 with 198 patches currently in review.
Around Kamal Mostafas kernels (38, 313) it is calm.

Upstream updates

Greg Kroah-Hartman announced the review cycle for linux315 3.15.4 featuring 66 patches. The new LTS kernel linux314 3.14.11 will get 59 patches, linux310 3.10.47 will own 46 patches and linux34 3.4.97 has 19 patches to come. They are all expected to be released next Monday. With linux34 I've some issues in i686. Currently version 3.4.95 is the last working kernel which boots up just fine. So if this one doesn't boot on i686 I'll drop linux34 from our support list.

Jiri Slaby announced linux312 3.12.24 which I'm currently building

All kernels will ship BFQ v7r5.

Even Upstream has to take some vacation. I already had my three week break. Let's go on with some updates. So which kernels do we have in line?

Canonical updates
Since some kernels are still relevant for Ubuntu, Canonical provides some extended stable supported kernels.

Kamal Mostafas released 3.13.11.8 with 103 patches.

Upstream updates

Quote from: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Note: This is a big stable release.  Mostly my fault for being on the
road last week, combined with an unusually large number of patches being
tagged for the stable tree.  Anyway, I've caught up with all pending
patches before 3.17-rc7, so if you have marked something for the stable
tree that I have not applied, or emailed the stable@v.k.o list asking
for a patch, that is not here, please let me know.

Greg Kroah-Hartman was on the road. That is why he skipped some kernel releases. Now he is picking up all patches and releases some big stable releases. 357 patches will been added to 3.16.4. 238 patches will been added to 3.14.20. And 143 patches will been added to 3.10.56.

Jiri Slaby's linux312 3.12.30 can be expected around the 8 of October as he is also on the road. 96 patches are now in review.

All kernels will ship BFQ v7r5.
