For new products? They really should not be. The kernel is officially
end-of-life, but I'm keeping it alive for a short while longer just
because too many people seem to still be using it. However, they are
not actually updating the kernel in their devices, so I don't think I
will be doing many more new 3.18.y releases.

It's a problem when people ask for support, and then don't use the
releases given to them :(

What is keeping you on 3.18.y and not allowing you to move to a newer
kernel version?
