Re: early notice 16.04.2 testing


Just a PSA - for anyone waiting for the release of 16.04.2 of
budgie-remix , Ubuntu Release team have just announced that they have
delayed 16.04.2 until the 2nd Feb. They are working through some
issues with the hardware-enablement-stack.

We will try to bring the 16.04.2 version of budgie-remix hopefully on
Sat/Sun 4th/5th Feb.  - thus will ping a ISO testing email probably
on the 3rd Feb.
