Apologies for the late arrival of this article, due to extended trip overseas, and hardware failure on return! RG.
Kernel 4.19 is out, and brief details are here: http://lkml.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/1810.2/05220.html The info here is worth reading, as it includes more on the Linus kernel handover – and ‘hand-back’..
It is worth mentioning that some issues have already been reported with this version – see later messages on the LKML.. http://lkml.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/1810.3/index.html
As expected, this kernel version is OK with the latest NVIDIA (410.73) and Vmware (15.0)
