Greg Kroah-Hartman has announced the immediate availability for download of yet another version of the Linux kernel, 3.0.99 LTS (long-term support).

Linux kernel 3.0.99 is a small release but, more importantly, it's also one of the last versions in this branch.

“The 3.0.x kernel series will be moving to End-Of-Life soon, within a few weeks. Please move anything that is relying on this kernel version to the other longterm kernel releases (3.4.x or 3.10.x) as soon as possible. If anyone has any questions about this, please let me know,” said Greg Kroah-Hartman in the email announcement.

Users of the Linux kernel 3.0.x branch are urged to update to the new version as soon as possible in order to fix any issues and to get support for new devices.

More details about the changes in this branch of the kernel can be found in the official announcement. Download Linux Kernel 3.0.99 LTS right now from Softpedia.
