Status: Quantal Development Kernel

We have recently rebased the Quantal kernel to the latest v3.5-rc3
upstream kernel and have also uploaded. It’s currently building in the
archive but should be available for testing in the near future. We
welcome any feedback. This will also get uploaded to the q-lts-backport
[1] PPA to help facilitate testing of the 12.10 kernel in 12.04. We
welcome any early adopters to please install, test, and let us know your
feedback there as well.
Important upcoming dates:

  • Thurs Jun 28 – Alpha 2 (~1 weeks)

    • Note there is some interesting discussions happening on the
      ubuntu-devel mailing list regarding completely dropping the Alpha’s
      and Beta’s and moving to a 2 week release cadence
