Codenamed "Yakkety Yak", Ubuntu 16.10 continues Ubuntu's proud tradition
of integrating the latest and greatest open source technologies into a
high-quality, easy-to-use Linux distribution.  The team has been hard at
work through this cycle, introducing new features and fixing bugs.

Under the hood, there have been updates to many core packages, including
a new 4.8-based kernel, a switch to gcc-6, and much more.

Ubuntu Desktop has seen incremental improvements, with newer versions of
GTK and Qt, updates to major packages like Firefox and LibreOffice, and
stability improvements to Unity.

Ubuntu Server 16.10 includes the Newton release of OpenStack, alongside
deployment and management tools that save devops teams time when
deploying distributed applications - whether on private clouds, public
clouds, x86, ARM, or POWER servers, z System mainframes, or on developer
laptops.  Several key server technologies, from MAAS to juju, have been
updated to new upstream versions with a variety of new features.

The newest Kubuntu, Lubuntu, Ubuntu GNOME, Ubuntu Kylin, Ubuntu MATE,
Ubuntu Studio, and Xubuntu are also being released today.  More details
can be found for these at their individual release notes:


Maintenance updates will be provided for 9 months for all flavours
releasing with 16.10.
