Linux Kernel 3.15.3 Is Now Available for Download

Greg Kroah-Hartman had the pleasure of announcing earlier today, July 1, that the third maintenance release for the current stable 3.15 branch of the Linux kernel is available for download, urging users to upgrade as soon as their Linux distributions update the respective packages on the official software repositories.

The Linux kernel 3.15.3 is a pretty standard release that introduces various updated drivers, some filesystem improvements, especially for Btrfs and EXT4, random mm and Bluetooth fixes, and the usual architecture enhancements (ARM, ARM64, IA64, SPARC, PowerPC, s390, and x86).

Be aware, though, that upgrading to a new Linux kernel package might break some things on your system, so it is preferable to wait a few days and see if anyone complains about it on the official channels of your distribution.
