Great news - Ubuntu LTS[masked] is now available. It's time to upgrade!
It's always been my recommendation to wait until the first "point release" so that all the initial bugs can get worked out. We'll step through the process of upgrading in-place on my production Ubuntu laptop and review the procedure on an instance of Ubuntu server.
Bootable USB sticks with 16.04 LTS and[masked] LTS will be available to take home.
