The 4.14 kernel has been released

By corbet The 4.14 kernel has been released after a
ten-week development cycle.

Some of the most prominent features in this release include
the ORC unwinder for more reliable
tracebacks and live patching,
the long-awaited thread mode for control
groups
,
support for AMD’s secure memory
encryption
,
five-level page table support,
a new zero-copy networking feature,
the heterogeneous memory management
subsystem
,
and more.
In the end, nearly 13,500 changesets were merged for 4.14, which is slated
to be the next long-term-support kernel.

For the maintainers out there, it’s worth noting Linus’s warning that the
4.15 merge window might be rather shorter than usual due to the US
Thanksgiving Holiday.
