This newsletter is to provide a status update from the Ubuntu Kernel Team. There will also be highlights provided for any interesting subjects the team may be working on.
- We released Linux v3.19.8-ckt22 stable.
Devel Kernel Announcements
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.
