UBUNTU --
Opt-in flavors of Ubuntu Linux wishing to do early development releases have issued their first alpha milestone for the 16.10 "Yakkety Yak" cycle.

The only Ubuntu flavors participating in the Ubuntu 16.10 Alpha 1 release are Lubuntu, Ubuntu MATE, and Ubuntu Kylin.

The release announcement by Martin Wimpress said, "Alpha 1 includes a number of software updates that are ready for wider testing. This is quite an early set of images, so you should expect some bugs. While these Alpha 1 images have been tested and work, except as noted in the release notes, Ubuntu developers are continuing to improve the Yakkety Yak. In particular, once newer daily images are available, system installation bugs identified in the Alpha 1 installer should be verified against the current daily image before being reported in Launchpad."

The Ubuntu 16.10 release for all flavors is slated for 13 October.
