Hello, I have a good news for those who likes bleeding-edge technology especially in Linux Kernel. The latest stable release of Linux Kernel version 3.10.1 has been released and can be installed on Ubuntu from DEB packages. Installing kernel 3.10.1 from DEB packages makes many things easier because there is no need to compile the Linux kernel source code. DEB packages make removing the installed kernel easier too!

Linux Kernel 3.10.1 changes and improvements:
  • cpufreq: Fix cpufreq regression after suspend/resume
  • SCSI: sd: Fix parsing of 'temporary ' cache mode prefix
  • KVM: VMX: mark unusable segment as nonpresent
  • nfsd4: fix decoding of compounds across page boundaries
  • NFSv4.1 end back channel session draining
  • MAINTAINERS: add stable_kernel_rules.txt to stable maintainer information
