This is due to be released this week. Would be useful for us to get some 
testing done and reported on the tracker.

64 bit currently at - 
32 bit currently at - 

Don't worry about the post installation testing - nor worry overly about 
the run once options, nor in fact the live session, other than ensuring 
it boots. Please concentrate on the 3 install testcases listed first.



Copy of Adam Conrads mail to mailing lists:

    A little while ago, builds for all flavours that released with xenial
    were posted to the ISO tracker[1] for the 16.04.3 milestone.

    We need people to grab ISOs for their favourite flavours (or, if yours
    is well-staffed, be a good neighbour and give someone else a bit of
    help) and poke around looking for obvious regressions, as well as just
    running the various boot/live/install/reboot smoketests to make sure
    the images are generally not broken.

    If you find a bug that is NOT a regression from 16.04.2, by all means
    report it, but don't escalate it to me as a release critical bug.  We
    are generally only intereseted in glaring regressions here.  Telling
    me that "we still have a bug that we had six months ago" is another
    way of saying "all software sucks" which, though an unfortunate truth,
    isn't something something I intend to fix by Thursday.

    Currently, the only known regression is an alpha rendering issue on
    nouveau (that is, using the free/open driver on nvidia cards) where
    some shadows and transparencies can be rendered as solid blocks.  We
    will almost certainly be releasing with this bug, but I've been told
    that people are actively looking into a fix post-release.

    Anyhow.  Please go test.  Register your results in the tracker.  Let
    me know if things are hideously broken or mostly okay, or somewhere in
    the middle.  With any luck, the images I built today will be the ones
    we release on Thursday.

    ... Adam
