On May 11, Greg Kroah Hartman announced the end of life (EOL) of the Linux Kernel 3.8.*, meaning that its support will stop and all the users are urged to upgrade to the 3.9.* kernel. Also, the kernel 3.10 RC1 is available, for the rocket science Linux geeks.

“NOTE, this is the LAST 3.8.y kernel release, please move to the 3.9.y kernel series at this time. It is end-of-life, dead, gone, buried, and put way behind us never to be spoken of again. Seriously, move on, it’s just not worth it anymore.”

“And for that specific two-letter hardware company that was insisting in public that I would be maintaining the 3.8.y kernel as a long-term kernel so that “you will do our maintenance work for us, for free,” please see figure one,” Greg Kroah-Hartman said in the email announcement.
