What is the thinking behind installing kernel branches like 4.1, 4.2 and 
4.3 etc and not a generic 'linux' pkg that updates to 4.4 and beyond?

Is there an easy way to know when 4.4 is released as part of a regular 
upgrade?

We usually follow the latest stable kernel series by default.

Currently we use the latest LTS series (4.1) because this would break 
catalyst.

But in void there's really no need to hurry while switching between series 
because the linuxX.X pkgs
can be installed side-by-side with others. So that you can have all 
linuxX.X pkgs installed at the same
time. Just set your desired version in grub.

Thanks - but how do I know when 4.4 is released?  By xbps-query'ing 
periodically?

That or with xrecent from xtools or by watching the void-packages 
repository on github.
