The first alpha release is now available for Ubuntu flavors opting-in to do their first 16.04 "Xenial Xerus" development release.

However, for others, their 16.04 Alpha 1 are out today. As of writing, Lubuntu, Ubuntu MATE, and Ubuntu Kylin are out with their 16.04 Alpha 1 releases while Xubuntu and Kubuntu are noticeably absent at the moment.
