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.
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 We briefly had a v4.6 based kernel in yakkety-proposed, but it was revoked due to it's lack of support for some arm64 platforms. We believe we have this resolved and will look to re-upload asap.
Our unstable branch has also been rebased to v4.8-rc4.
Also, as noted in previous newsletters, we are also going to target a v4.8 based kernel for the 16.10 release.
