Participating in today's Yakkety Yak Alpha 2 development milestone are Lubuntu, Ubuntu MATE, and Ubuntu Kylin. No Xubuntu or Kubuntu releases to report on this morning.

Lubuntu 16.10 continues using LXDE while LXQt is "still in development."

Ubuntu MATE 16.10 Alpha 2 has added the MATE Heads-Up Display (HUD) for offering an experience similar to Unity 7's menu-bar HUD. Ubuntu MATE has also upgraded some components like MATE Tweak, MATE Dock Applet, and Ubuntu MATE Welcome.
