The latest Clear Linux release has a slew of updates, including the 4.8.11 Linux kernel,
Mesa 13.0.1, and X 1.19. With the added auto-updating feature these kind of improvements
will now land automatically.
Clear Linux is now an auto-updating OS. Updates will be automatically applied if
available. These auto-updates are periodically performed in the background but also at
boot time. You can be assured that your container images will also get updates when they
really need them. We've made it simple for users to disable these auto-updates: `sudo
systemctl mask swupd-update.service` is all you need to run to disable them.
The latest release completes a suite of updates to Clear Linux. The update to the Linux
kernel 4.8.11 brings with it quite a few changes, including the Intel i915 driver. The new
release upgrades Mesa to the new development upgrade Mesa 13.0 which includes the
implementation of the OpenGL 4.4 API. X updates have been added, including xorg-server
version 1.19.0. We've also added several new components, including ntfs-3g and thermal
daemon. A few other new and updated components are highlighted below.
