It is finally here! The first point release of the Linux 4.4 LTS kernel series, which was announced by Linus Torvalds on January 10, 2016, arrives today for GNU/Linux distributions that already adopted it.

Linux kernel 4.4.1 LTS is a fairly normal maintenance build that promises to address various issues with the x86, AMR64 (AArch64), and PPC (PowerPC) hardware architectures, updates a few USB and networking drivers (mostly Ethernet), adds multiple sound enhancements, and improves the networking stack, especially for things like B.A.T.M.A.N. Advanced, Open vSwitch, IPv6, IPv4, Phonet, SCTP (Stream Control Transmission Protocol), as well as XFRM.
