Weekly Roundup 2018 – Weeks 20 & 21:

Now that we’re starting to recover from the Grand Update, the mad flow of security and bugfix updates is resuming (see below), and tmb warns of more Spectre-related updates coming:

Spectre… “the gift that keeps giving…”

Upstream kernel 4.14 branch has the fixes/mitigation backports for variant 4 currently going through stable queue review process and should be released tonight / tomorrow after which I will release it to cauldron and mga6 testing.

Spectre v3A will get microcode fixes in the coming weeks so we’ll get to that part later…
