we updated once more some of our **Kernels**, added the latest **[Mesa v17.3.2]**, renewed **Systemd** and released the latest **[Intel Microcode]**, which prevents issues with **Spectre** and **Meltdown**.
We also added some more fixes to **gcc**, which prevents issues with **Spectre** and **Meltdown** and needed [boost rebuild]. Additionally we fixed some issues within **Nvidia** drivers and **Octopi**, updated our **Firefox** developer edition, updated our **AMD drivers support**, had some **Python** and **Haskell** rebuilds and the usual **Repo-Cleanups**. **linux316** gained the needed **KPTI** patches.
It is recommended to reboot your system, so microcode updates on Intel and AMD based systems get loaded. Possible with following kernels series: **linux44**, **linux49**, **linux414** and **linux415**. Please avoid other kernel series for now, this includes also realtime kernels.
Our effort and all the needed information about the new security risk can be found [here].
Remember,** we only continue with our 64bit architecture from now on**. Please adopt to [another distribution], if needed on 32bit supported systems, as you may not get any updates on that architecture from us.
Please report back and give us feedback for given changes made to our repositories.
