Greg Kroah-Hartman has announced the new maintenance version of LTS (Long Term Support) Linux kernel 3.14. The new Linux kernel 3.14.41 LTS has fixed issues in the ARM, ARM64, PowerPC, Xtensa, x86, c6x, MIPS, Unicore, and SPARC architectures.

It has also addressed problems discovered in the Btrfs and EXT4 file systems and patched the networking (IPv4) and sound issues.

As expected, Linux kernel 3.14.41 LTS comes with numerous updated drivers, especially for ACPI, USB, Bluetooth, GPIO, MTD, Memory Stick, MD, GPU (Radeon and Intel i915), I2C, SCSI, Ethernet (Intel e1000), Wireless (rtl8192cu, wl18xx), InfiniBand, CLK, and SPI.

“I’m announcing the release of the 3.14.41 kernel. All users of the 3.14 kernel series must upgrade,” says Greg Kroah-Hartman. “The updated 3.14.y git tree can be browsed at the normal kernel.org git web browser: https://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-stable.git;a=summary.”

You can download Linux kernel 3.14.41 LTS right now directly from the kernel.org website however if you are not comfortable with compiling a kernel, you did better wait for your distro to update that kernel package.
