rss feeds

Anybody know how I can get an rss feed for the latest stable kernel version? The official rss feed shows the mainline rc version.

Would one of these help? Or is this already the official feed?
https://www.kernel.org/feeds/kdist.xml. First entry is to the mainline rc and the subsequent ones are for the stable ones.
https://lkml.org/rss.php

EDIT: Just clicked on the links to verify and saw that the 4.8 series just got bumped to 4.8.8: stable.

Thanks jssouza.

I am using this rss feed now but the problem is this. The first entry is the mainline rc kernel version. I have a device that shows me rss feeds but it only shows the mainline rc version (i presume because it is the first) and I need it to show me the stable version only. I may need to make a custom solution.

Thanks. If my rss feed was working how I want it, I would have known this already. I will review the changelog to see why they are pushing these updates so fast. Kernel is updating more frequently than flashplayer!

EDIT:
A quick look at the changelog shows MANY updates in the ipv6 area.

Code: Select all

    This patch updates skb->protocol to ETH_P_IPV6 in ip6_tnl_xmit() when an
    IPv6 header is installed to a socket buffer.
    
    This is not a cosmetic change.  Without updating this value, GSO packets
    transmitted through an ipip6 tunnel have the protocol of ETH_P_IP and
    skb_mac_gso_segment() will attempt to call gso_segment() for IPv4,
    which results in the packets being dropped.
