The Thanksgiving weekend brought us two new point releases for the stable Linux 4.8 and long-term supported Linux 4.4 kernels. Linux kernel 4.8.11 arrived on November 26, 2016, and it's now considered the most advanced stable version.
Linux kernel 4.8.11 arrives only five days after the Linux 4.8.10 maintenance update, and, according to the appended shortlog and the diff since the previous patch, it changes a total of 77 files, with 595 insertions and 238 deletions. It's not a massive update, as you can imagine, and the biggest part of the patch is driver updates, with the rest is spread out between architectures, filesystems, networking, and sound.
