Xubuntu 16.10 Released, Includes Xfce Packages Built with GTK+ 3 Technologies

Also shipping with the recently released Linux 4.8 kernel, which promises to support even more hardware components than the version using in Xubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus), Xubuntu 16.10 is a normal release that brings an improved Xfce4 desktop environment that ships with multiple packages built against the GTK+ 3.20 technologies. Xubuntu 16.10 also comes with an up-to-date Xfce Terminal app that was ported to the GTK+ 3.20 technologies, which invaded other official Ubuntu flavors from the Yakkety Yak release as well, and it looks like many Xfce plugins were ported to GTK3 for this cycle, which will receive security and software update for 9 months, until July 2017.
