Only the latest upstream release gets full support from the upstream developers, everyone else is expected to first update to it before receiving any kind of support. This bugfix release has already been uploaded to Yakkety and automatically backported in the upstream PPAs for all Ubuntu releases. So far without any reported regression. This should qualify under the minor upstream bugfix release allowance of the SRU policy, letting us SRU this without paperwork for every single change included in this upstream release. Once the SRU hits -updates, we will be backporting this to trusty- backports as well, making sure we have the same version everywhere.
