The second maintenance release of Linux Kernel 3.7 has been released. The Linux Kernel 3.7.2 brings a lot of improvements and bug fixes especially for ALSA, NFS filesystem, bluetooth devices, and Apple wireless keyboard. Today, I'd like to give a download links of the latest Linux Kernel so you can install it easily. Please don't install this release of Linux Kernel on your production system because it may break your system :)

Linux Kernel 3.7.2 changes and improvements:
  • Add Apple wireless keyboard 2011 ANSI to special driver list
  • "Bluetooth: Fix possible deadlock in SCO code"
  • Bluetooth: cancel power_on work when unregistering the device
  • Bluetooth: Add support for BCM20702A0 (Asus P8Z77-V)
  • nfs: avoid dereferencing null pointer in initiate_bulk_draining
  • NFS: Ensure that we free the rpc_task after read and write cleanups are done
  • NFS: Fix access to suid/sgid executables
  • ALSA: hda - add mute LED for HP Pavilion 17 (Realtek codec)
  • ALSA: hda - Fix pin configuration of HP Pavilion dv7
  • ALSA: hda - Add stereo-dmic fixup for Acer Aspire One 522
