Devel Kernel Announcements
We're blocking on some d-i dependencies before we can upload our v4.6 kernel. We are coordinating with the Foundations team to get that unblocked.
Our unstable branch has also been rebased to v4.8-rc6.
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.
