The 4.0.5, 3.14.44, and 3.10.80 stable kernels have been released. These contain a number of important bug fixes, including the fixes for the ext4 and RAID 0 data corruption issues discussed in this article.

Kernel prepatch 4.1-rc7

Monday 8th of June 2015 01:15:37 PM
The 4.1-rc7 prepatch is out. "Normally rc7 tends to be the last rc release, and there's not a lot going on to really merit anything else this time around. However, we do still have some pending regressions, and as mentioned last week I also have my yearly family vacation coming up, so we'll have an rc8 and an extra week before 4.1 actually gets released."
