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
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.
