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 We briefly had a v4.6 based kernel in yakkety-proposed, but it was revoked due to it's lack of support for some arm64 platforms.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.
