At the moment, Ubuntu Touch is using the older Ubuntu 15.04 (Vivid Vervet) branch, which is no longer supported by Canonical since February 4, 2016, so they need to stop adding any new major features to the OS and update its internals instead, as the company announced earlier this month on the official mailing list.
