Linux 4.17 Stable Has Been Settling Well, Coming Soon To Fedora
The latest on the adoption route is preparing Linux 4.17 to come down as a stable release update for Fedora 27 and Fedora 28. Fedora kernel developer Justin Forbes confirmed that things are looking well for this latest kernel release. Fedora 28 should get a Linux 4.17 kernel in their updates-testing repository next week and to ship soon after that point. Linux 4.17 for Fedora 27 will follow and that should be cleared before the end of the month.
Meanwhile some rolling-release Linux distributions like Intel's Clear Linux are already happily running on Linux 4.17.1, including a few of my daily test boxes there and it's been running great.
Let us know in the forums if you have run into any upsets or issues with Linux 4.17 and its many new features/changes.
