Hi Lubuntu PPC users and testers,

You find a version that is almost the same as a released Lubuntu 16.04.1 
LTS version for PowerPC at


       124 24 jul 21.28 md5sum.txt
771637248 24 jul 16.47 xenial-alternate-powerpc.iso
   1507332 24 jul 21.29 xenial-alternate-powerpc.iso.zsync
941045760 24 jul 17.23 xenial-desktop-powerpc.iso
   1838208 24 jul 21.29 xenial-desktop-powerpc.iso.zsync

You can download the iso files as usual or via zsync with




zsync is checking the md5sum as part of the process, so it is very 
reliable, and it is particularly good, if you intend to check daily iso 
files regularly, because you need only download the difference from the 
previous (daily) iso file.


These files can be tested, but you can also install them like they were 
the real released 16.04.1 LTS version for PowerPC. Not much has happened 
during the few days after the release. I think nothing at all happened 
during the first two days, so these iso files should be very similar. 
Probably some minor bug is squashed, and I think and hope that no major 
bug has emerged during these days.

So happy testing and usage :-)

Best regards
