Braswell support

Hi. I'm planning to install bunsenlabs on a Braswell machine and would like to know if it's supported out of the box or if I have to follow the same steps mentioned in "Broadwell and beyond" to get graphics to work.

^ This. The Braswell series was released in January 2016 so will need the newer kernel & graphics stack (and possibly the non-free firmware) to work at all well.

It is worth noting that Arch (and other bleeding-edge distributions) will run better on that device thanks to the newer Xorg version which cannot be easily backported to a jessie base.
