Gmane
From: Greg KH <gregkh <at> linuxfoundation.org>
Subject: Linux 3.2.8
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Monday 27th February 2012 20:45:57 UTC (over 4 years ago)
I'm announcing the release of the 3.2.8 kernel.

This is an "interesting" update, in that "only" one bug is being
resolved here, handling a floating point issue with new x86 processors
running in 32bit mode.  But, this also fixes x86-64 issues as well in
this area, so all users are encouraged to upgrade.  If anyone has any
problems, please let us know as soon as possible.

The updated 3.2.y git tree can be found at:
        git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-stable.git
linux-3.2.y
and can be browsed at the normal kernel.org git web browser:
        http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-stable.git;a=summary

thanks,

greg k-h
