Mythbuntu 16.04 Released

CORRECTION 2016.04.23 - It was previously stated that 16.04 is a point release to 14.04. This was due to a silly copy&paste issue from our previous release statement for 14.04. The Mythbuntu 16.04 release is a flavor of Ubuntu 16.04. We're sorry for any confusion this has caused.


Mythbuntu 16.04 has been released. This is our third LTS release and will be supported until shortly after the 18.04 release.

The Mythbuntu team would like to thank our ISO testers for helping find critical bugs before release. You guys rock!

With this release, we are providing torrents only. It is very important to note that this release is only compatible with MythTV 0.28 systems. The MythTV component of previous Mythbuntu releases can be be upgraded to a compatible MythTV version by using the Mythbuntu Repos. For a more detailed explanation, see here.

You can get the Mythbuntu ISO from our downloads page.

We appreciated all comments and would love to hear what you think. Please make comments to our mailing list, on the forums (with a tag indicating that this is from 16.04 or xenial), or in #ubuntu-mythtv on Freenode. As previously, if you encounter any issues with anything in this release, please file a bug using the Ubuntu bug tool (ubuntu-bug PACKAGENAME) which automatically collects logs and other important system information, or if that is not possible, directly open a ticket on Launchpad (http://bugs.launchpad.net/mythbuntu/16.04/).

Upgrade Nodes

If you have enabled the mysql tweaks in the Mythbuntu Control Center these will need to be disabled prior to upgrading. Once upgraded, these can be reenabled.
