Ubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak) Final Beta Freeze Now in Effect, Lands September 22

Tomorrow’s Final Beta or Beta 2 build is the last development milestone for the Ubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak) operating system, which has an official launch date set for October 13, 2016, for all official derivatives except Mythbuntu and Edubuntu. Also, you should know that the queue freeze stage will last until the October release. Ubuntu 16.10 Final Beta will be released for both 64- and 32-bit hardware platforms, so it looks like Canonical did not put its plan into action as reported earlier this year, despite the fact that most users voted for 32-bit ISO builds to be dropped from Ubuntu 16.10 and future releases.
