Ubuntu 16.04 LTS Xenial Xerus will have Linux 4.3 kernel

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS Xenial Xerus background

Canonical's development team focused on the Ubuntu desktop distribution is working hard for future releases. Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, codenamed Xenial Xerus, will have a Linux 4.3 kernel after its stable release. Just as Linux 4.2 is the one that brings Ubuntu 15.1o Wily Werewolf to life, now another step in progress will be taken with a more up-to-date kernel version.

So announced by Joseph Salisbury, reporting this new event in the corresponding development group. The newsletter has also reported that the base they currently use is on Linux 4.2 on which they work for Ubuntu 16.04, although it states that the Linux 4.3 version is open for development. The Ubuntu 16.04 LTS development process has just started and we all hope that, apart from improvements regarding the kernel, it will also include other interesting improvements ...

On December 31, the last day of 2015, will be the day chosen to have available a first Alpha development version of Ubuntu 16.04 LTS that we can test. A good Christmas gift that Canonical makes us for the most fans of Ubuntu. A month later, Alpha 2 will arrive, on January 28, 2016. For the Beta we will have to wait until February 25 and the Final Beta on March 24. Finally, the final version will be released on April 21, 2016.
