Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS New Features and Improvements
Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS is the third point release in the Ubuntu 16.04 LTS series, and the second to be released this year. Ubuntu 16.04.4 LTS will follow it early next year. Ubuntu LTS releases come with 5 years of ongoing package updates, bug fixes, hardware improvements, and security patches. A point release is an updated version of the LTS installation image that rolls together all of these updates. This helps to reduce the number of packages and patches that a user has to download after installation. It also ships with a new hardware enablement stack (HWE). This is composed of a recent Linux kernel release, graphics drivers (including mesa 17) and display server. The updated hardware stack in Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS brings Linux 4.10 kernel with it. This is the same kernel available in the Ubuntu 17.04 release. As with all kernel updates this offers improved hardware support, particularly for newer devices, as well as performance improvements, and better power management. The next HWE will likely ship with the kernel from Ubuntu 17.10, which at the time of writing is looking like Linux 4.13.
