Kubuntu 16.10 Is Out with KDE Plasma 5.7, Applications 16.04.3 and Frameworks 5.26

Shipping with pretty much the same features that were available in the Beta release, Kubuntu 16.10 uses the KDE Plasma 5.7.5 desktop environment, along with the KDE Applications 16.04.3 software suite and KDE Frameworks 5.26.0 collection of add-on libraries for Qt 5. Just like Ubuntu 16.10, Kubuntu 16.10 uses the Linux 4.8 kernel for better hardware support. As usual with any new Kubuntu release, your favorite apps have been updated to their latest versions, and besides the default KDE applications, which most of them have been ported to the KDE Framework 5 technologies, you’ll find the LibreOffice 5.2.2 office suite and Mozilla Firefox 49.0 web browser.
