Lubuntu 16.10 Alpha 1 Officially Released with LXDE and Linux Kernel 4.4 LTS

By Softpedia News (Marius Nestor)

Today, June 30, 2016, the Lubuntu team has released the first Alpha build of the upcoming Lubuntu 16.10 operating system, as part of the Ubuntu 16.10 Alpha 1 release for opt-in flavors.

We’ve already told you what’s new in the Ubuntu MATE 16.10 Alpha 1 distribution, so it’s now time to take a look at the second of the three Ubuntu flavors that participated in the first Alpha release of the Yakkety Yak series.

However, being the first Alpha, you shouldn’t expect to see any major changes, as the Lubuntu 16.10 Alpha 1 operating system ships with same Linux 4.4 LTS kernel as Lubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus).

Ubuntu 16.10 Alpha 1 Is Out for Opt-in Flavors, Final Release to Land October 13

By Softpedia News (Marius Nestor)

Believe it or not, the development cycle of the next Ubuntu release has started, and a first Alpha build is now officially released, today, June 30, 2016, as expected based on the release schedule for Ubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak).

As some of you might very well be aware of, the two Alpha release and the first Beta in the development cycle of a new Ubuntu Linux version are only for the opt-in flavors. Unfortunately, as we reported the other day, only three Ubuntu flavors are participating in the Ubuntu 16.10 Alpha 1 release, namely Ubuntu MATE, Lubuntu, and Ubuntu Kylin.

We’ve been monitoring the development of Ubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak) since the first daily builds were made available for download, and until today, we can report that no major changes have been done to the operating system, which ships pretty much with the same core components and applications as Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus).

Therefore, Ubuntu 16.10 Alpha 1 ships today with Linux kernel 4.4 LTS, s… (read more)
