TDLR: Kinetic Kame is now also on Docker Hub! 🐳

I'd just like to piggyback off this announcement and let everyone know that
the Official Docker Hub repo for ROS has also been updated to include the
Kinetic release.


So, you can know easily run and test Kinetic, even if you haven't yet
migrated to Ubuntu Xenial on your host OS.
Simply run this command to download and start a bash session in a kinetic
enabled container:

$> docker run -it ros:kinetic


   - The implicit 'latest' tag, reserved for the latest LTS, has now also
   been moved to point from indigo to kinetic.
   - Installing Docker on linux: https://docs.docker.com/linux/step_one/
   - Ticket an issues with the images: https://github.com/osrf/docker_images
   - Don't forget to stare our official repo so others might discover it
