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

ExLight Linux Build 160810 is here to rebased 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 0.20.99.0 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.
