Ubuntu 16.10 Yakkety Yak Alpha 2 released

The Ubuntu development team has announced availability of Ubuntu 16.10 Yaketty Yak for testing. This release announcement is also applicable for  other official community flavors of Ubuntu like Lubuntu, Ubuntu Kylin,and Ubuntu MATE.

Ubuntu 16.10, second development version of upcoming stable Ubuntu release includes fixes for several bugs reported in previous development release and it includes updated packages for testing. Since this a development release at early stage of development, it is likely to find some issues with this release and hence it is not recommended for people who are looking for a stable operating system.

Pre-releases of the Yakkety Yak are *not* encouraged for anyone needing  stable system or anyone who is not comfortable running into ccasional, even frequent breakage. They are, however, recommended for buntu flavor developers and those who want to help in testing, eporting and fixing bugs as we work towards getting this release ready.

Alpha 2 includes a number of software updates that are ready for wider esting. This is still an early set of images, so you should expect some ugs.

While these Alpha 2 images have been tested and work, except as noted in he release notes, Ubuntu developers are continuing to improve the akkety Yak. In particular, once newer daily images are available, ystem installation bugs identified in the Alpha 2 installer should be erified against the current daily image before being reported in aunchpad. Using an obsolete image to re-report bugs that have already een fixed wastes your time and the time of developers who are busy rying to make 16.10 the best Ubuntu release yet. Always ensure your ystem is up to date before reporting bugs.
You can find official release announcement in Ubuntu developer mailing list.
