On Thursday Wily will be released.

Currently we are testing the Release Candidate.

If you are expecting to be upgrading to Wily - and don't forget that 
Vivid is only supported until January - then doing so now

  * helps Xubuntu
  * you miss the rush at the end of the week and the 'is it out yet'

We report install and upgrade tests so that *we* know the state of play.

As it stands now, we have 1 report of an issue with swap creation. 2 
further issues bug 1495943 
<https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gvfs/+bug/1495943> and 149170 
<https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xdg-utils/+bug/1497170> are 
present on the current build, but an upgrade after install sees them 
both fixed. We expect the image to be rebuilt in the next day or so at 
which point they should have 

Further information can be seen on the DRAFT 
<https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WilyWerewolf/FinalRelease/Xubuntu> release note 
- this changes as we see issues reported, both for us specifically and 
generally for any issues in all the flavours.

links are archived, current and live testing for Upgrades and Xubuntu
