This is not a Long Term Release
This release is not designated as a Long Term Release (LTR). Users wishing to have a version of QGIS which does not change and receives bug fixes for at least 1 year are invited to use the current LTR release 2.14 (which now becomes our official LTR with the release of QGIS 2.16).
New Features in QGIS 2.16 'Nødebo'
If you are upgrading from QGIS 2.14 you will find a great many new features in this release. We encourage you to peruse the changelogs for previous releases releases as this QGIS 2.16 release includes all features published in those releases too.
Whenever new features are added to software they introduce the possibility of new bugs - if you encounter any problems with this release, please file a ticket on the QGIS Bug Tracker.
