Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial Xerus LTS final beta is available for download, and it includes quite a few changes, including an option to move the Unity Launcher to the bottom of the screen, the replacement of Ubuntu Software Center with GNOME Software and more.

Note that this is the first and only Ubuntu 16.04 (with Unity) beta. The ISO says “beta 2” because some of the Ubuntu flavors (like Ubuntu MATE) also had a beta 1 release, and this is beta 2 for them.

Based on Linux 4.4 LTS, Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial Xerus is an LTS release which means that it’ll remain supported for the next 5 years.

Also, it’s the first Ubuntu LTS to be released with systemd as default service manager.
