After two months of development, Linus Torvalds announced the release of Linux kernel 4.3.

About 48% of all presented in 4.3 of the changes associated with device drivers, approximately 18% of changes relate to updating the code for specific hardware architectures, 11% is related to network stack, 3% - file systems and 4% c internal kernel subsystems.

Warning. The Linux kernel is a critical element of the system. To do the upgrade costs when one of your hardware devices is not working properly, and the new kernel may fix this problem. But at the same time installing a new kernel unnecessarily can lead to undesirable regressions, such as: no network connection, no sound or even the inability to boot the system, so install a new kernel on your own risk.
You can download the relevant deb packages from HERE and install them. Or just follow the instructions given below that will help you to install a new kernel multiple commands in terminal.
