While Android 7 "Nougat" is available as the latest upstream from Google, the Android-x86 folks have finally put out their first stable release of Android-x86 6.0 Marshmallow.

In addition to pulling in the latest code from the Android Open-Source Project (AOSP) with those improvements made by Google for Android Marshmallow, the Android-x86 developers have as usual added in various extra features.

New to Android-x86 6.0 is the Linux 4.4.20 kernel, Mesa 12.0.2 for graphics driver support, initial support for HDMI audio, support for the Flash-Friendly File-System (F2FS), changes to trackpad handling, and improved suspend/resume support by fixing some WiFi driver issues.
