On December 10, Greg Kroah-Hartman announced the immediate availability for download of yet another maintenance release for the stable Linux 3.0 kernel series.
Linux kernel 3.0.56 has been made available just a few days after the previous version. It usually takes a little more time between releases, but the kernel developers and maintainers are probably going to take a short vacation for the holidays. This would also explain the scanty changelog.
"I'm announcing the release of the 3.0.56 kernel. All users of the 3.0 kernel series must upgrade."
"The updated 3.0.y git tree can be found at: git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-0stable.git linux-3.0.y and can be browsed at the normal kernel.org git web browser: http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-stable.git;a=summary," said Greg KH in the email announcement.
As usual, the Linux kernel 3.0.56 is a must-grab update for all Linux people who use the Linux 3.0 kernel. Therefore, upgrade as soon as possible!
