Canonical Will Keep Linux Kernel 4.2 Alive for Ubuntu 15.10 Until August 2016

Canonical’s Ubuntu Kernel Team promises to maintain the Linux 4.2 kernel until August 2016, as the Ubuntu 15.10 (Wily Werewolf) operating system will reach end of life on July 2016. They will try to use the same stable review and request workflow, as well as to follow the standard upstream rules for the stable Linux kernels.
