Linux kernel 4.6 reaches end of life

Those using a GNU/Linux operating system powered by a kernel from the Linux 4.6 branch have been urged to move to Linux kernel 4.7.

According to a report by Softpedia, users have been advised to install the new Linux kernel 4.7.1 build.

“I’m announcing the release of the 4.6.7 kernel. All users of the 4.6 kernel series must upgrade,” said Linux developer Greg Kroah-Hartman.

“Note, this is the last 4.6.y kernel to be released, please move to 4.7.1 now, you have been warned.”

The statement comes after the first point release for the Linux 4.7 kernel series.
