Linux kernel 4.4 LTS (Long-Term Support) was officially released by Linus Torvalds and his team of developers on 10 January.

Torvalds wrote in a post that “nothing untoward happened this week, so Linux 4.4 is out in all the usual places”.

A slashdot user highlighted that prominent features of Linux kernel 4.4 LTS included 3D support in the virtual GPU driver – allowing for 3D hardware-accelerated graphics in virtualization guests.

The latest Linux kernel also offers a leaner and faster loop device that supports Asynchronous I/O and Direct I/O – increasing the system’s performance and saving memory – and support for Open-Channel SSDs through LightNVM.
