Devel Kernel Announcements

https://git.launchpad.net/~ubuntu-kernel/ubuntu/+source/linux/+git/yakkety

Our Yakkety kernel tree still remains a snapshot of our Xenial kernel. We are however tracking a v4.6 based kernel in our unstable repository and hope to get that uploaded to the archive for preliminary testing soon. We'll then start rebasing to the early v4.7-rc#'s.

Also, as noted in previous newsletters, we are also going to target a v4.8 based kernel for the 16.10 release.
