At the end of April, the Ubuntu developers have announced that the development of the next major release of the Debian-based operating system, Ubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak), is officially open, which means that they will start uploading new package versions, sync the repositories with upstream, fix potential issues, and rebased the kernel packages, as everything right now in Yakkety is based on Xenial.
The Ubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak) daily build live ISO images have been made available for download immediately after the April 21st release of Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus), for early adopters, but most, if not all, of the packages, have the same versions as those in Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, including the kernel. But it looks like that will change soon, and Ubuntu 16.10 will be powered by Linux kernel 4.6.
