Latest kernel

Hi all,

Am new to beaglebone black and also to linux. I am using a 3.8.13-bone71 kernel which I update it using /opt/scripts/tools/./ .
Is it the latest release? If not how can I update it to the latest release? Am using debian.

Well, that depends on:

cat /etc/dogtag

If it's newer then "Oct 2014"

These apply:

if not..
