    Here's the changelog: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/XenialXerus/ReleaseNotes

    The main difference for me is the introduction of their snap package format, which packages all dependencies along with the application. The trouble is that you'll end up with the same situation as Windows, where every single app downloads and installs the exact same libraries over and over, and when an update is necessary they all do it when it suits them (which might be never).

    Then again, it would make it easier to install stuff.

    Edit: Oh and they added ZFS (I think most people are aware of they controversy surrounding that by now).

    Here's a shorter blog post that outlines the major stuff: https://insights.ubuntu.com/2016/04/20/canonical-unveils-6th-lts-release-of-ubuntu-with-16-04/

    We might as well resort to cavemen grunts at this point.
