Ubuntu 15.10 Is Now Based On Kernel 4.0.4

Yesterday, the Ubuntu Kernel Team members met to discuss about the kernel version that will be used on the stable version of Ubuntu 15.10 and plan the development steps.

For now, Ubuntu 15.10 still uses Kernel 3.19 (the same kernel as Ubuntu 15.04), but the next daily builds should bring Kernel 4.0.4, which is the latest stable version available released so far. But if Linus Torvalds manages to get Kernel 4.1 out in time, Canonical may implement it as default, on Ubuntu 15.10 Wily Werewolf.

Also worth mentioning, the Release Schedule for Ubuntu Wily has been revealed recently, the stable version of the OS being planned to arrive on the 22nd of October.
