Canonical has just unveiled the latest Ubuntu version. Nicknamed Yakkey Yak, Ubuntu 16.10 comes with multiple updates to the core packages, including a new 4.8-based kernel, a switch to gcc-6, and more.

The highlights of the new Ubuntu release include the following:

  • Unity 8 developer preview with desktop, phone, and tablet UX convergence
  • Juju 2.0 hybrid cloud operations
  • Snapd 2.16
  • MAAS 2.0
  • over 500 snaps published
  • latency and throughput improvements in network and virtualization
  • newer GTK and QT versions
  • updates to major packages, including Firefox and LibreOffice

As it usually happens with new versions, the various Ubuntu variants also got updated. Their list includes Kubuntu, Lubuntu, Ubuntu GNOME, Ubuntu Kylin, Ubuntu MATE, Ubuntu Studio, and Xubuntu.

Ubuntu 16.04 users will get 16.10 as an automatic update, as long as they chose to be notified of all releases. Since this is not one LTS release, maintenance updates will only be provided for 9 months.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
