=== Ubuntu Touch OTA-15 released ===

Lukasz Zemczak announces the release of OTA-15, advising that all
users should receive the update within 24 hours of his announcement.
He says that the release is only a "security bugfix update" and shares
a link to the release notes. Lukasz concludes his announcement by
informing us, "The next future OTAs will most likely be very similar,
concentrating only on critical security issues - until ubuntu-personal
enters the touch world with its snaps."

ready to release Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS as there are some minor issues
that still need to be addressed. He says that this is the first point
release that will come with the HWE [Hardware Enablement] stack from
Ubuntu 16.10, and quotes Canonical's Adam Conrad as saying "There are
still some bits I need to tidy up to get server images going, but that
shouldn't stop people from testing the desktop images."
