Greg Kroah-Hartman announced a few minutes ago, March 28, the immediate availability for download of the fifth maintenance release for the stable Linux 3.8 kernel series.
Linux kernel 3.8.5 comprised lots of updated drivers (USB, Ethernet, i915, Radeon, etc.), filesystem improvements (EXT4, CIFSfs, JBD2, etc.), a couple of ARM fixes for Tegra chips, as well as networking (IPv4 and IPv6) and sound enhancements.
"I'm announcing the release of the 3.8.5 kernel. All users of the 3.8 kernel series must upgrade."
"The updated 3.8.y git tree can be found at: git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-stable.git linux-3.8.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," Greg KH said in the email announcement.
Linux kernel 3.8.5 is a must-grab upgrade for all users of the 3.8.x branch of the Linux kernel. Please update your system(s) as soon as possible. Be aware that Linux kernel 3.0.71 and Linux kernel 3.4.38 were also released today!
