Linux 3.10 Kernel Receives Two Updates in One Day

Filed under
Linux

The stable Linux 3.10 kernel received not one, but two updates in the span of less than seven hours on Aug. 20, after a small development mishap. The new updates provide additional driver and stability support for Linux 3.10, which was recently designated as a long-term supported kernel, which will be maintained for at least the next two years for use by enterprise Linux and consumer electronics organizations.

The kernel is the heart of an open-source Linux operating system, providing system architecture, file-system, networking and driver support.

At 9 a.m. PT on Aug. 20, Linux kernel developer Greg Kroah-Hartman announced the 3.10.8 kernel update. At 3:44 p.m. PT, Kroah-Hartman announced the Linux 3.10.9 kernel.
