Live kernel patches for Ubuntu

Linux Weekly News - sze, 2016-10-19 16:33
Canonical has announced the availability of a live kernel patch service for the 16.04 LTS release. "It’s the best way to ensure that machines are safe at the kernel level, while guaranteeing uptime, especially for container hosts where a single machine may be running thousands of different workloads." Up to three systems can be patched for free; the service requires a fee thereafter. There is a long FAQ about the service in this blog post; it appears to be based on the mainline live-patching functionality with some Canonical add-ons.

Sebastian Kügler reports on KDE's Plasma team meeting. "We took this opportunity to also look and plan ahead a bit further into the future.

Specific topics include release schedule changes, UI and theming improvements, feature backlog, Wayland, mobile, and more. (Thanks to Paul Wise)
