-Not all testing cycles will use all the milestones available to us, though in general an LTS cycle will include them. 
- 
-While Daily testing is an on-going requirement,​ at times during a development cycle we approach //​Milestones//​. At those points the iso build is halted in order that a period of prolonged testing can take place. ​ 
- 
-**NOTE:​** ​ A milestone release goes out of date rapidly, they should only be used for testing when Xubuntu QA calls for it.

-Dates for milestones can be found on the current Release Schedule.

-Milestones, including Daily, are listed on the [[http://​iso.qa.ubuntu.com/​ |iso tracker]], you will be able to see which are currently being tested.

-<​sup>​1</​sup>​ If downloading the iso daily then it makes sense to use the link to the current iso, this being the latest iso at any point, perhaps in conjunction with an alias. For example one member of the QA team uses this '​image'​ alias to grab the daily for both the 32 and 64 bit iso's and to remove the zsync old file once done. Change the release name once a cycle, wily to xenial to suit, use your own path to the saved iso(s): ​ 
- 
-alias image='​cd /​mnt/​Spare/​iso/​Xubuntu/​Xenial/​ && zsync http://​cdimage.ubuntu.com/​xubuntu/​daily-live/​current/​xenial-desktop-i386.iso.zsync && zsync http://​cdimage.ubuntu.com/​xubuntu/​daily-live/​current/​xenial-desktop-amd64.iso.zsync && rm /​mnt/​Spare/​iso/​Xubuntu/​Xenial/​*.zs-old'​
