Status: Stable, Security, and Bugfix Kernel Updates – Oneiric/Natty/Maverick/Lucid/Hardy

Here is the status for the main kernels, until today (Apr. 10):

Oneiric has been somewhat problematic. We ran into a couple of very bad regressions
that were pretty quickly identified. Our policy is to “revert aggressively” however
our number one rule is to “Use our best judgement and do the right thing”. In this
case we are also running into the end of the Precise development cycle when testing
resources (human) are scarce. After discussing this with a number of people we have
decided to fix these known regressions and also pull in the stable release that was
sitting on master-next and crank that out. The cycle will be extended with regression
testing happening the week of May 1st.

  • Hardy – 2.6.24-31.101 – Nothing this cycle
  • Lucid – 2.6.32-41.88 – Verification; 52 commits in total.
  • Maverick – 2.6.35-32.68 – Ready for -updates; NOTE: THIS IS THE LAST MAVERICK KERNEL!
  • Natty – 2.6.38-14.58 – Ready for -updates; 12 commits in total. Mostly eCryptfs and KVM.
  • Oneiric – 3.0.0-19.32 – Verification;
