It looks like the Linux kernel maintainers have decided that there’s no need to maintain the Linux kernel 3.14 LTS series anymore, so they decided to release that last maintenance update, version 3.14.79, and mark the series as EOL (End of Life).
Famous Linux kernel maintainer Greg Kroah-Hartman was the one to make the big announcement, and he’s urging users who want to still run a long-term supported kernel version to move to the Linux 4.4 LTS series, which is currently the most advanced LTS branch, or use the latest stable release, Linux kernel 4.7.3.
As mentioned, Linux kernel 3.14.79 has been released , just one day after the launch of Linux kernel 3.14.78 LTS, and it is the last in the series, which means that you can either update your GNU/Linux operating system to this last maintenance update or start migrating to a newer long-term supported (LTS) or stable kernel branch.
