>From Qubes-OS 4.1.0 I updated dom0 today, and see the 5.15 kernel at
reboot, and xen-4.14.5-6 etc.  However, the 'release' info in the file
/etc/qubes-release and from the 'About' tab in Qubes Manager still says
R4.1 -- is this any indication that my update did not fully bring the
system to R4.1.1 and there are additional steps needed?  Thank You.

[qubes-users] Qubes OS 4.1.1 has been released!

2022-07-18 Thread Andrew David Wong

Dear Qubes Community,

We're pleased to announce the stable release of Qubes 4.1.1! This 
release aims to consolidate all the security patches, bug fixes, and 
upstream template OS upgrades that have occurred since the initial Qubes 
4.1.0 release in February. Our goal is to provide a secure and 
convenient way for users to install (or reinstall) the latest stable 
Qubes release with an up-to-date ISO.


Qubes 4.1.1 is available on the 
[downloads](https://www.qubes-os.org/downloads/) page.



## Reminder: Qubes 4.0 approaching end-of-life

As we recently 
[announced](https://www.qubes-os.org/news/2022/07/04/qubes-os-4-0-eol-on-2022-08-04/), 
Qubes 4.0 reaches EOL (end-of-life) on 2022-08-04. If you're using Qubes 
4.0 and have been waiting for an opportunity to upgrade to Qubes 4.1 via 
the [clean 
reinstallation](https://www.qubes-os.org/doc/upgrade/4.1/#clean-installation) 
method, we strongly recommend using this Qubes 4.1.1 release to do so, 
as this is the last Qubes 4.1 patch release before Qubes 4.0 reaches EOL.



## Existing Qubes 4.1.0 and release candidate users

If you are already using Qubes 4.1.0 or [Qubes 
4.1.1-rc1](https://www.qubes-os.org/news/2022/06/27/qubes-4-1-1-rc1/), 
then you should simply [update 
normally](https://www.qubes-os.org/doc/how-to-update/) (which includes 
[upgrading any EOL 
templates](https://www.qubes-os.org/doc/how-to-update/#upgrading-to-avoid-eol) 
you might have) in order to make your system essentially equivalent to 
this stable Qubes 4.1.1 release. No special action is required on your part.



## What's new in Qubes 4.1.1?

Qubes 4.1.1 includes numerous updates over the initial 4.1.0 release, in 
particular:


- All 4.1.0 dom0 updates to date
- Fedora 36 template (upgraded from Fedora 34)
- Linux kernel 5.15 (upgraded from 5.10)


## What is a patch release?

The Qubes OS Project uses the [semantic versioning](https://semver.org/) 
standard. Version numbers are written as `..`. 
Hence, we refer to releases that increment the third number as "patch 
releases." A patch release does not designate a separate, new major or 
minor release of Qubes OS. Rather, it designates its respective major or 
minor release (in this case, 4.1.0) inclusive of all updates up to a 
certain point. Installing Qubes 4.1.0 and fully updating it results in 
essentially the same system as installing Qubes 4.1.1. You can learn 
more about how Qubes release versioning works in the [version 
scheme](https://www.qubes-os.org/doc/version-scheme/) documentation.
