Devel Kernel Announcements
Our Yakkety kernel is currently based on v4.6.7. We briefly had a v4.6 based kernel in yakkety-proposed, but has since been revoked while we clean up some failures.
Our unstable branch has also been rebased to v4.8-rc3.
Also, as noted in previous newsletters, we are also going to target a v4.8 based kernel for the 16.10 release.
