How do we determine when we get the newer kernels?
As went from 4.9.5 then 4.10.5 and it just updated last night to 4.11
So when do we get newer kernels? I ask because last 6 months been seeing 3.7,3.8 now 3.10 and we are still at 3.5.0-36
So how does the KDE group determine when to upgrade the kernel versions?
And how do we backport as I have Backported packages checked but still not getting newer kernels?
Are there Kernel upgrades changelogs of kernels that are not in geek-speek that can be understood by mere humans who are considering if there is a need in upgrading the kernel. I have been a computer technician for 30 years and still don't understand most of the kernel changes as
Means little to regular user's and no way knowing if a kernel upgrade would resolve their issues or not.
Any info or Insights directions,etc... Would be greatly appreciated.
