Given that the release date is so near, I seriously doubt that Pat will consider updating the kernel.

However, if you are reasonably comfortable with compiling, this would be a good place to start.

Hi,

Why??

Kernel 3.10.17 is long term and it's late in the game for a new release. If you need or want a new kernel then get it from: https://www.kernel.org/

Then for some helpful reading;

I'm actually a little surprised that upping to .18 wasn't considered as the changelog shows several bug fixes for what appear to be severe problems.

Only a little, though, considering how fixing one bug almost always introduces two more...I'll trust Pat and the gang on this one. :)
