16.04 is an LTS release. But, an upgrade path from the previous LTS --
14.04 -- to 16.04 will not become formalized (i.e., accessible) until
the first point release is ready -- 16.04.1.

So, you have an LTS release. As upgrades are made, you should receive them.

Keep in mind that you're at the cutting edge right now. So, software not
directly connected to the ubuntu/xubuntu projects (like ubuntu tweak)
may not be immediately updated for compatibility. Give those developers
some time to work their magic in between all the issues life might be
throwing their way.

If you haven't checked them out yet, take a look at
http://ubuntuhandbook.org/ and http://www.webupd8.org/ for news
especially about third-party software.

take care,
