Ubuntu 16.04.6 LTS released


The Ubuntu team is happy to announce the release of Ubuntu 16.04.6 LTS
(Long-Term Support) for its Desktop and Server products, as well as other
flavours of Ubuntu with long-term support.

Unlike previous point releases, 16.04.6 is a security-targeted release
for the purpose of providing updated installation media which protects
new installations from the recently discovered APT vulnerability
(USN-3863-1). Many other security updates for additional high-impact
bugs are also included, with a focus on maintaining stability and
compatibility with Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.

Kubuntu 16.04.6 LTS, Xubuntu 16.04.6 LTS, Mythbuntu 16.04.6 LTS,
Lubuntu 16.04.6 LTS, Ubuntu Kylin 16.04.6 LTS and Ubuntu MATE 16.04.6
LTS are also now available. More details can be found in their
individual release notes:

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/XenialXerus/ReleaseNotes#Official_flavours

Users of Ubuntu on clouds are recommended to launch new instances using
the latest images from the 16.04 release stream, which include the fix
in APT for USN-3863-1.

Maintenance updates are provided for 5 years for Ubuntu Desktop,
Ubuntu Server, Ubuntu Cloud, Ubuntu Base, and Ubuntu Kylin. All the
remaining flavours are supported for 3 years.
