While there had been much speculation that Linux 5.9 would be the kernel's next long-term support release based on past timing, Linux 5.10 is going to be the LTS release.

Greg Kroah-Hartman who is the main stable maintainer for the Linux kernel confirmed at the Linux Foundation's Open-Source Summit Europe that Linux 5.10 will be the LTS release.

Linux 5.10-rc1 released yesterday and should debut as stable by mid-December. This kernel will then be maintained for the years ahead under the Linux LTS program.

Seeing Linux 5.10 become LTS rather than Linux 5.9 is welcome news since Linux 5.10 has many new features and improvements especially in the way of new hardware support. There also aren't any major Linux distributions sticking to Linux 5.9 for the long-term and the likes of Ubuntu 20.10 are leveraging Linux 5.8.

The current LTS kernel series is Linux 5.4 and is expected to be maintained through the end of 2025. Linux 5.10 LTS meanwhile will likely be maintained through the end of 2026 with security/bug fixes.

@TurboBlaze,
Thanks for the update!

Given the news, I've gone ahead and built and installed the 5.10-rc1 kernel on the most recent Slackware64-current along with,

elogind-243.7-x86_64-1-alien (after removing ConsoleKit2, of course),
dbus-1.12.20-x86_64-1-alien,
udisks2-2.9.0-x86_64-1_rlw,
upower-0.99.11-x86_64-4_rlw,
and the nouveau driver.
No VirtualBox, of course.
So far, so good.

Maybe it's just my machine, but I can't run Qemu guests with kernel 5.10-rc.1. I get the message "Guest has not initialized the display (yet)". No problem running the same VM's with kernel 5.9.1. When compiling 5.10-rc.1, I accepted all of the defaults during 'make syncconfig'. YMMV.

Excellent news Jeebizz!
I realize 5.4 has been vetted quite well but I really hope 5.10 makes it into 15!

Just a heads up for anyone also having this issue; my previously mentioned video tearing issue with 5.9 when using libvdpau-va-gl is still present in 5.9.2. 5.8.17 remains unaffected.

This is on Intel Broadwell hardware. I've tried both the i965 and iHD libva backends, with equal results.

5.9.2 wouldn't build.
I started the build and left the room, and returned 40 minutes later to find the error message,
Quote:
make: *** [makefiles:1704: drivers] Error 2
So, I'm back to using the 5.10-rc1 kernel and other than no virtualbox, everything else is working as it should.
No fuss, no muss.

Edit in: Tried a second time to build 5.9.2, but it just came to a halt after about 10 minutes without an error message. I'll try again with 5.9.3.

FWIW, 5.9.2 compiled fine for me, running 14.2-64 and using the generic x64 config for 5.4.72 from current and accepting all the defaults when running make oldconfig (and compiling ext4 support into the kernel to avoid needing an initrd). Everything working fine so far, although uptime is only 23 minutes.
