Linux 5.8 Is Released And It The Largest Release Of All Time. There are big changes to many networking drivers, including wireless drivers. The AMD graphics driver has improvements and regressions. You may want to hold off on upgrading to 5.8 until a few minor point releases are made to ensure that the potential problems this kernel release could potentially introduce are ironed out. That is specially true if you have a AMD GPU or use Mellanox networking cards.
