I hate to beat a dead horse, but comments are closed on #5821 and it seems like the issue should be reopened. I realize it's possible to run 16.04 in a Docker container (#6469). But, 12.04 (the current default) is about to fall out of LTS and not be supported by Ubuntu. It makes sense for travis to have two options for Ubuntu, those being the two LTSs that are available in any given year. As of April this year that will be 14.04 and 16.04.

Are there any plans to move to 16.04 or will the answer always be to use Docker?

Thanks for taking time to open this issue.

We have a plan to move to 16.04, but at the moment, we do not have ETA for it. We understand that this has been slow in coming, and it's frustrating for you, but we do not have any update to share other than those mentioned in the issues you mention.

Got it. Kind of annoying to have to go the Docker route but sounds like the only option for now.

Thanks!

As another data point, Heroku have just made their 16.04 based stack the default:

Is there an ETA yet for supporting Ubuntu 16.04?

I accidentally left dist: xenial in my travis.yml a while back and sometime recently my jobs started using xenial. So it seems this was released quietly.

Perfect timing. I need to use Xenial right now.

Looks like the dist: xenial option does not work (anymore?).

Is there any way to use Ubuntu 16.04 even though it's not considered stable? For example for our side projects etc.

As you saw, we are working on dist: xenial. It may or may not work, depending on what we are working on. It is not supported in any way, and we apologize in advance that you may experience problems from time to time. We will work on various issues as they come up, but we are unable to offer any support.

Disable test that triggers segfault in Travis CI
Segfault is due to the ancient PyQt4 shipped in Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty
and is fixed in Ubuntu 16.04 Xeinal, however this version is not yet
available on Travis CI [1] and using docker for unittests feels like
removing most of the builtin features of Travis CI.

Xenial would allow us to use default meson build settings, along with ninja-build. For now I had to setup a docker to make it compile using a fedora image...

Can't wait to have Xenial available!

I suggest to start working on 18.04 and skip 16.04 :)
