Stateless Persistent Network Interface Names Landed in Ubuntu 15.10 (Wily Werewolf)

Martin Pitt informs us that stateless persistent network interface names have now been enabled by default in the current development release of the Ubuntu 15.10 (Wily Werewolf) Linux operating system. The implementation was done via the udev 220-6ubuntu2 package and it will not affect upgrades, but only new installations. The new functionality will also arrive in the upcoming Debian GNU/Linux 9 (Stretch) distribution.
