Devel Kernel Announcements

We hope to finally have a yakkety v4.6 based kernel in the archive by end of week. Fingers crossed!


Our unstable branch has also been rebased to v4.8-rc5.


Also, as noted in previous newsletters, we are also going to target a v4.8 based kernel for the 16.10 release. We will likely skip uploading a v4.7 based kernel to the archive and go directly to v4.8.
