Not a bird, but a dog, had a hand in this set of stable releases.
 
New kernel release announcement, made from 30k feet, with Walter the Labradoodle sitting in the seat next to me and then falling asleep on my arm. (https://instagram.com/walterthelabradoodle/ )

3.10.81
3.14.45
4.0.6

Also, now that 4.1 is out, time to announce that it will be the next "Long Term Support" kernel I'll be maintaining for the next two years.

4.0-rc7 is out, go test it.

Because the final release is close, and let's make sure we buck the industry trends, and make a good solid dot-zero release.

Obey the human.
 
So as I posted a couple of weeks ago, I wanted to do the Linux 3.17 release one week early so that I could get the first week of the merge window done before travel. 

That was not to be.

So 3.17 went through the usual full rc schedule, and it's out today, rather than a week ago. Go get it, and kick the brand new shining tires.

And because I'm now traveling during what would normally be the first week of the merge window, I'm going to delay the merge window instead.  Oh well. 

But hey, if you have your git tree ready for merging, you can always send the pull request early anyway. That will help get your stuff in early once I actually start merging...

Hey there - Linux 3.17-rc6 is out, and I'm hoping this is the last rc for this release. 

It would be lovely if people would test it on their hardware (and with their software) to make sure it's all ready. And even if you worry about testing development kernels, by rc6 it really is pretty safe. So go for the cheap karmic brownie points.

There is no cost, except maybe support with some distro`s, but if you feel you should buy it or donate for development feel free to do so.Keep  in mind linux always was and always will be  free.Some companies may try to make money out of it, like redhat and others, but linux is basicaly open source.Can you buy it at a store? Sure you can, if you do you will support development, but make sure the money end up were they should.Greedy people will try scamm you...My advice to you is to begin with OpenSuse or Ubuntu, both free and easy to download and install, and they are always up to date.But if you are new to linux better start with OpenSuse.Google-it , they are easy to find.

It was almost closing time, the kitchen was shut down, the waitress was off getting our last drink orders, 2 empty cases of wine were in the corner of the room, half of the dinner party had escaped before the second round of liquor-infused gelatin shots had caused an arm wrestling match between the intern and the CTO, when suddenly the phrase "Double Funky Skunk" escaped Alex's lips for no good reason. It was then that the 3.15.8 kernel codename was established.

If you don't like the 3.15 kernel, and want something a bit more "mature", 3.4.101, 3.10.51, and 3.14.15 are also out now for your enjoyment.

Me, it's time for a nap, it was a very late evening...

  4.0.1
  3.19.6

Argh, what's that bright light???

Time to go back inside and curl up with some new kernels that came out last week:
  3.18.2
  3.17.8
  3.14.28
  3.10.64
And for the brave and smart:  3.19-rc4

Remember, this was the last 3.17-stable kernel to be released, you should be using 3.18 by now as 3.17 is not to be seen again, just like this sun in the Pacific Northwest.

Weather only fit for a seabird.
 
This is the Seattle we all know and love.  Cold, grey, and rainy.  Just the perfect weather to stay inside and curl with a brand new stable kernel release.

For your enjoyment and warmth, we have the following new releases today:
  3.10.61
  3.14.25
  3.17.4
And for you SLES people out there, there's the wonderful 3.12.33 release from Jiri Slaby.

Go forth and build new kernels, don't go out on the water, it's miserable out here...

23 years ago today was the original Linux announcement on comp.os.minix (but no actual code drop).

How time flies. In remembrance, you can get 3.17-rc2 and play with it, if you want to help test what is bleeding edge today. 
Hello everybody out there using minix -. I'm doing a (free) operating system (just a hobby, won't be big and professional like gnu) for 386(486) AT clones. This has been brewing since april, and is starting to get ready. I'd like any feedback on things people like/dislike in minix, ...

Trust me, I think LINUX is far from bleeding edge.

Quiz time:
The second most common place that Linux kernels are released is:
  1) Deep underneath our subartic lair
  2) On a ferry in the Puget Sound
  3) Sitting in an airport waiting to be shuffled off to some random city for unknown reasons.

If you picked 3), you were right!  (the construction of the lair is still on-going, don't get us started on contractor overruns...)

So, here's 4 new kernels for your enjoyment to build while you think of me stuck in a metal tube:
  3.4.100
  3.10.50  (ooh, nice how those numbers lined up...)
  3.14.14
  3.15.7

And of course, 3.16-rc7 came out yesterday, but you should already be running that one, I don't have to tell you that.  It's the kernel release that powered these releases.

Linux - doing it right
Introduction
Linux Kernel project Google Page

Maybe I'll post release announcements here. And maybe I won't. I like keeping people in suspense.

And once Google+ Pages can have multiple administrators, maybe Greg will do stable kernel announcements here too.
