ExLight Linux Is Now Based on Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS and Debian GNU/Linux 8.5


ExLight Linux Build 160810 is here to rebase the entire OS to the recently released Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS (Xenial Xerus) operating system, as well as to upgrade the default desktop environment to Enlightenment from 0.19.12 and move to a kernel from the Linux 4.6 series, specially optimized by Arne Exton to support more hardware.
Probably the most exciting new feature of the ExLight Linux Build 160810 release is the replacement of kernel 4.6.2-exlight with kernel 4.6.0-10-exlight, which appears to be based on the upstream Linux 4.6.5 kernel, the latest version available at the moment of the announcement for the new ExLight version (Linux kernel 4.6.6 is now the latest).
Other than that, the new ExLight Linux build comes with a 64-bit ISO-hybrid image that users can write on either USB flash drives or DVD discs, support for running the entire operating system directly from RAM by using the “Copy to RAM” option from the boot menu, and a fully functional Ubiquity graphical installer.
