Multiple Ways To Upgrade Linux Kernel In Ubuntu 22.04 LTS
After being in development for almost two months, Linux kernel 6.0, Linus Torvalds announced the release and general availability of Linux 6.0 as a major kernel series.
So, as is hopefully clear to everybody, the major version number change is more about me running out of fingers and toes than it is about any big fundamental changes. But of course there's a lot of various changes in 6.0 - we've got over 15k non-merge commits in there in total, after all, and as such 6.0 is one of the bigger releases at least in numbers of commits in a while. The shortlog of changes below is only the last week since 6.0-rc7. A little bit of everything, although the diffstat is dominated by drm (mostly amd new chip support) and networking drivers. And this obviously means that tomorrow I'll open the merge window for 6.1. Which - unlike 6.0 - has a number of fairly core new things lined up. But for now, please do give this most recent kernel version a whirl, Linus
