Today, July 27, 2016, Greg Kroah-Hartman announced the availability of the fifth maintenance update for the Linux 4.6 kernel series, urging all users to update as soon as possible.
The Linux 4.6 kernel branch is no longer the most advanced one, but it is still the most stable as the recently released Linux 4.7 kernel is currently on the mainline channel, and will move to become the stable series when the first point release is published. Therefore, Linux 4.6.5 appears to be the latest stable kernel version available right now for GNU/Linux operating systems, bringing changes for a total of 220 files, with 1754 insertions and 998 deletions.
