Status: Precise Development Kernel

We uploaded the 3.2.0-18.29 kernel last Friday and we have just
rebased master-next to upstream stable v3.2.10 (minus 1 patch which
introduces a build failure). Beta-2 Freeze is next Thurs, March 22. I
plan to upload this Friday and hope that this will be the kernel we use
for Beta-2. Should any additional patches land which are deemed
necessary for Beta-2 we would have enough time to upload again no later
than Tues, March 20. Any uploads after that are subject to approval by
the release team.
Important upcoming dates:

  • Thurs Mar 22 – Beta-2 Freeze (~1 week)
  • Thurs Mar 29 – Beta-2 (~2 weeks)


Status: CVE’s

Currently we have 71 CVEs on our radar, two new CVEs were added this week.
See the CVE matrix for the current list:

In addition to the two new CVEs one gained an additional fix which has
also been applied. Overall the backlog is unchanged this week:
