Ubuntu 16.10 Yakkety Yak now reaches the Alpha 2 release, features images for Lubuntu, Ubuntu MATE and Ubuntu Kylin.
The second alpha of the Yakkety Yak (to become 16.10) has now been released!
This milestone features images for Lubuntu, Ubuntu MATE and Ubuntu Kylin.
Pre-releases of the Yakkety Yak are *not* encouraged for anyone needing a stable system or anyone who is not comfortable running into occasional, even frequent breakage. They are, however, recommended for Ubuntu flavor developers and those who want to help in testing, reporting and fixing bugs as we work towards getting this release ready.
Alpha 2 includes a number of software updates that are ready for wider testing. This is still an early set of images, so you should expect some bugs.
Ubuntu 16.10 Alpha 2 release highlights:
- This Yakkety Yak snapshot still includes the v4.4 kernel
- Lubuntu still uses LXDE since LXQt is still in development
- MATE Tweak adds option to enable Heads-Up Display (HUD)
- new Ubuntu MATE start page.
- MATE Dock Applet drag and drop icons support
