Following a number of delays, Linus Torvalds has finally announced release of a Linux 4.18, the latest stable release of the Linux kernel.
Announcing the arrival of Linux 4.18 on the Linux Kernel Mailing List (LKML), Linus Torvalds writes:
“One week late(r) and here we are – 4.18 is out there. It was a very calm week, and arguably I could just have released on schedule last week, but we did have some minor updates.”
In development since June, the Linux 4.18 cycle has taken a little longer to fully form that anticipated, but with a decent change-log attached, I’m sure most won’t mind.
Linux 4.18 is also lighter than previous releases, with nearly 100k fewer lines of (obsolete) code than Linux 4.17.
