Linux kernel developer Willy Tarreau has announced the release of the one hundred and third maintenance update to the long-term supported Linux 3.10 kernel series.
For some reason, the Linux 3.10 kernel branch is still getting updates, and this new version promises to add quite some improvements and updated drivers. According to the appended shortlog and the diff from the Linux kernel 3.10.102 LTS build, a total of 161 files have been changed, with 1,800 insertions and 1,293 deletions.
For those of you who are wondering what’s new in the Linux kernel 3.10.103 LTS, we would like to tell you that this update brings many improvements to the MIPS, PowerPC (PPC), x86, ARM, ARC, and s390 hardware architectures, as well as various enhancements and fixes to the EXT4, CIFS, NFS, NILFS2, UBIFS, XFS, FUSE, and eCryptfs filesystems.
There are also lots of updated drivers, in particular for Radeon, InfiniBand, SCSI, USB, Virtio, Xen, MTD, MMC, MD, iiO, HID, GPIO, ATA, Crypto, and networking (mostly Ethernet and Wireless) devices, as well as an updated networking stack with IPv6, IPv4, Netfilter, Netlabel, Ceph, Bluetooth, IrDA, mac80211, SCTP, SunRPC, and RFKill fixes. The sound stack has been updated as well with some new audio drivers.
