    It looks like 4.19.0-9 is the kernel ABI version. The actual kernel version is 4.19.118.x

      Linux Kernel 4.19.118.x was released by The Linux Foundation, "Thu Apr 23 10:30:24 2020 +0200". It was available to most Debian operating systems as a complied binary: "2020-04-23 11:08", about the same time, allowing for different time zones.
      There are three more bug fixes available for Linux Kernel 4.119, but normal Debian systems need to use the Ubuntu set of compiled kernels to access these, usually.

      If Debian-based systems want the very latest official Linux kernels, it is currently "v5.6.11", released 2020-05-06 11:1.
      For users wanting fast Linux Kernels, you can choose the Low Latency version, if you run AMD64 or ARMHF processors.
      However, perhaps readers don't care about maximum speeds from Linux, but just a balanced set of uses, including power savings.

        Please stop spreading FUD.
        4.19.0-9 is an internal Debian version which is based on mainline version 4.19.118*
        *linux-image-4.19.0-9-amd64 (4.19.118-2) is a dependency of linux-image-amd64

          Even if I misunderstood the version numbers, how is that FUD?

            After reading your comment one can think Debian kernel maintainers leave users without security/other patches after more than 100 mainline LTS releases.
            Sometimes Debian maintainers don't fix some things for "current stable" (e.g. they didn't update Plasma LTS releases for Debian 9) but they actually care about security (browsers, kernel, libraries etc) pushing new versions or back-porting patches.

              How is that FUD? The user you quoted already wrote (by the way, you even quoted that part) that the mainline version is 4.19.118. 4.19.0-9 actually IS the Debian kernel ABI version.

                I have no idea how you could get that out of my comment. I just thought Michael misread the announcement, since he said it includes "the Linux 4.19.0-9 kernel".
                Announcement says:
                linux-latest Update kernel ABI to 4.19.0-9
