Greg Kroah-Hartman has announced the immediate availability for download of Linux kernel 3.11.10, which integrates a few driver updates.

The new maintenance version of the 3.11.10 branch has been released, but it seems that it’s the end of the road for this branch. It has been declared EOL (end of life) which means that it will not receive any updates.

“I'm announcing the release of the 3.11.7 kernel. All users of the 3.11 kernel series must upgrade. Note, this is the LAST 3.11.x kernel to be releases, please move to 3.12.x at this point in time. 3.11.x is end-of-life, not to be updated again..”

“The updated 3.11.y git tree can be found at: git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-stable.git linux-3.11.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,” Greg Kroah-Hartman said in the email announcement.

Users of the Linux kernel 3.11.x branch are urged to update to the new 3.12 branch as soon as possible. More details about the changes in this branch of the kernel can be found in the official announcement.
