On March 18, 2016, kernel developer Jiri Slaby announced the release of the fifty-seventh maintenance build of the long-term supported Linux 3.12 kernel series.
Earlier this week we announced several Linux kernel maintenance releases, including Linux kernel 4.4.6 LTS, Linux kernel 3.14.65 LTS, Linux kernel 3.10.101 LTS, Linux kernel 4.1.20 LTS, and Linux kernel 3.18.29 LTS, and today we're informing our readers about the release of Linux kernel 3.12.57 LTS.
Most of the changes are, as expected, updates to various drivers, including ATA, EFI, GPU (mostly Radeon), Ethernet, MTD, IOMMU, USB, and Xen. "I'm announcing the release of the 3.12.57 kernel. All users of the 3.12 kernel series must upgrade," said Jiri Slaby.
