The Ubuntu Kernel Team has released a new installment of its newsletter to inform the Ubuntu community about the latest work done on the GNU / Linux operating system kernel packages that give this blog its name. In late April, Ubuntu developers announced that the development of Ubuntu 16.10 Yakkety Yak it was officially opened, which means they started uploading new versions of packages, synchronizing repositories, fixing possible issues and readjusting kernel packages, as all of this from Yakkety Yak is currently based on Xenial Xerus.
The ISO images of the daily build of Ubuntu 16.10 are available for download from April 21, just after the release of the latest version of operating system developed by Canonical. All packages, including the kernel, are based on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, but it looks like this will change soon and Ubuntu 16.10 will start using, in principle, the nuclei 4.6, Which also seems to change when the official release next October.
Ubuntu 16.10 could come with the 4.7 or 4.8 kernel
When the release of Ubuntu 16.10 occurs, which as you know will be called Yakkety Yak, its kernel could be different. Work is currently underway on the next two versions, 4.7 and 4.8, one of which has been supported for several years to be an LTS version, and the next version of Ubuntu is expected to arrive with one of two versions being developed At this moment.
In any case, it is too early to know that it will include the next version of Ubuntu. If you want to try all the new features that are included, you can download the daily build of Yakkety Yak des THIS LINK, But I don’t think it’s recommended until at least two or three months from now. Right now it’s not worth installing a version that is pretty much the same as the last official version that was released on April 21st. Of course, if despite our warnings you decide to try it, do not hesitate to leave your impressions in the comments.
