LTS 16.04 review roundup!

What a month! We had the release of Ubuntu 16.04 LTS that allowed us to bring out newer software for desktop in the form of snap packaging formats and tools.

By bringing snap packages to Ubuntu 16.04 LTS we are unifying the experience for Ubuntu developers, whether they are creating software for PC, Server, Mobile, and/or IoT Devices. This means greater security and reliability as it allows the two packaging formats – snap packages and traditional deb packages – to live comfortably next to one another which enables us to maintain our existing processes for development and updates to the OS. This reinforces our relationship with the Debian community and it enables developers and communities to publish either debs or snaps for the Ubuntu audience.

To celebrate the release, we’ve collated a range of reviews that shed light on what the LTS means. Happy reading!
