    It was dated to release April 14th, and Google won't find me any answers. I have also been watching DistroWatch.com and a few other Linux news sites like lxer.com, unixmen.com, linuxinsider.com, omgubuntu.co.uk, etc... But nothing. As of this posting, it's 23 minutes from April 15th, so what gives? Do I just download the daily build and assume that's it? It's not even labeled as an RC. Any help is appreciated. Picture is a reference, stating the release timeline for 16.04 LTS:

    Yeah all i could find was the final beta. Maybe they're running behind on schedule? I guess its better to wait for a week for the Final Release.

    True, but I'm testing all major milestone releases of the Lubuntu equivalent to make sure nothing breaks on me before releasing the next version of MediCat DVD on the 23rd.

    I too don't yet see a RC and when I attempted an upgrade from 15.10 -> 16.10 on DigitalOcean it failed so I suspect it not quite ready yet.

    I've read somewhere that RC will not be announced publicy and that daily builds post 14th April are considered to be the RC. I'm not sure about these informations so take with a grain of salt.

    I think you're right, it seems that the April 15th daily build is the RC. Either way, it seems very stable.
