"The Jogpa, in our mad flight, cut off a long lock of the yak's silky
hair. Having secured this, he appeared to be quite satisfied, let go,
and sheathed his sword."
― Arnold Henry Savage Landor
The first beta of the Yakkety Yak (to become 16.10) has now been released!
This milestone features images for Kubuntu, Lubuntu, Ubuntu GNOME,
Ubuntu Kylin, Ubuntu MATE, Ubuntu Studio.
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 bos grunniens
Beta 1 includes a number of software updates that are ready for wider
testing. These images are still under development, so you should expect
While these Beta 1 images have been tested and work, except as noted in
the release notes, Ubuntu developers are continuing to improve the
Yakkety Yak. In particular, once newer daily images are available,
system installation bugs identified in the Beta 1 installer should be
verified against the current daily image before being reported in
Launchpad. Using an obsolete image to re-report bugs that have already
been fixed wastes your time and the time of developers who are busy
trying to make 16.10 the best Ubuntu release yet. Always ensure your
system is up to date before reporting bugs.
Lubuntu is a flavor of Ubuntu based on LXDE and focused on providing a
very lightweight distribution.
