Hi Dylan,

Yes, I believe Jaunty will ship with 2.16. Jaunty is currently using
2.15.5 which is a development release leading up to 2.16, so it is
reasonable to assume that Jaunty will have 2.16.

2.16 was only released on Friday and it is still the weekend at the
moment, so it's probably a little unreasonable to expect it to have been
packaged already. I'm sure that this is something that someone will work
on early this week.
