Hello.

I am currently using, on different systems, with different hardware
combinations, UbuntuMATE 15.10.

With what is at
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/XenialXerus/ReleaseNotes
and at
https://ubuntu-mate.org/blog/ubuntu-mate-xenial-final-release/
in terms of
"
Known issues
As is to be expected, with any release, there are some significant
known bugs that users may run into with this release of Ubuntu 16.04.
"
(from the first of those two URL's)
my question is thus;
is it safe to upgrade from 15.10 to 16.04?

Insofar as I am aware, UbuntuMATE does not have its own support
mailing list, so I believe that I must ask the question, on this
mailing list.

Thank you in anticipation.
