     "The Linux Kernel 3.13 is now available for the users", announced Linus Torvalds. Just check what Linus wrote on the mailing list:

The release got delayed by a week due to travels, but I suspect that's
just as well. We had a few fixes come in, and while it wasn't a lot, I
think we're better off for it. At least I hope so - I'll be very
disappointed if any of them cause more problems than they fix..

Anyway, the patch from rc8 is fairly small, with mainly some small
arch updates (arm, mips, powerpc, s390, sparc, x86 all had some minor
changes, some of them due to a networking fix for the bpf jit). And
drivers (mainly gpu and networking). And some generic networking
fixes. The appended shortlog gives more details.

Anyway, with this, the merge window for 3.14 is obviously open.

This article will guide you to install or upgrade to Linux Kernel 3.13.0 in your Ubuntu or Linux Mint system.

Features

  • Multi-queue block layer was merged.
  • Better disk (SSD) performance with lower disk latencies.
  • AMD HDMI audio improvements.

  • mainline NVIDIA Tegra support for new hardware.
  • Ongoing work with Btrfs performance tuning.
  • Samsung's F2FS supports new features as the promising Flash-Friendly File-System.
  • a number of changes to ACPI and power management, including more hardware having CPUfreq drivers.
  • Linux 3.13 introduces a Linux Power-Capping Framework and Run-Time Average Power Liming driver.
