The 4.14 kernel has been released

Sunday November 12, 2017. 09:11 PM , from LWN.net
The 4.14 kernel has been released after a
ten-week development cycle.

Some of the most prominent features in this release include
the ORC unwinder for more reliable
tracebacks and live patching,
the long-awaited thread mode for control
groups,
support for AMD's secure memory
encryption,
five-level page table support,
a new zero-copy networking feature,
the heterogeneous memory management
subsystem,
and more.
See the Kernel Newbies 4.14
page for more information.

In the end, nearly 13,500 changesets were merged for 4.14, which is slated
to be the next long-term-support kernel.

For the maintainers out there, it's worth noting Linus's warning that the
4.15 merge window might be rather shorter than usual due to the US
Thanksgiving Holiday.
