We have to admit that we were certain of the fact that this would be a very small release with some critical fixes, but looking at the appended shortlog, we can notice quite a few changes in Linux kernel 4.2.5, which is now the most advanced stable branch of the Linux kernel project, the core component of any GNU/Linux operating system. In numbers, this version changes 64 files with 465 insertions and 312 deletions.
“I’m announcing the release of the 4.2.5 kernel. All users of the 4.2 kernel series must upgrade,” said Greg Kroah-Hartman. “The updated 4.2.y git tree can be found at: git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-stable.git linux-4.2.y and can be browsed at the normal kernel.org git web browser: http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-stable.git;a=summary.”
