Status: Quantal Development Kernel
We’ve recently uploaded the 3.5.0-13.13 Quantal kernel to the release
pocket. This upload most notably provides a rebase to the v3.5.3
upstream stable release. This was also uploaded to the q-lts-backport
 PPA to help facilitate testing of the 12.10 kernel in 12.04. We
welcome anyone to please install, test, and let us know your feedback.
Note that we are 2 days away from Beta-1 Freeze and ~1 week away from
Beta-1 intself. I do not foresee any further uploads before Thursday,
ie. Beta-1 Freeze. If there are any critical fixes which need to land,
we need to know now. Any uploades after Beta-1 Freeze will require
approval from the release team.
Important upcoming dates:
- Thurs Aug 30 – Beta 1 Freeze (2 days)
- Thurs Sept 6 – Beta 1 (~1 week)
== 2012-08-28 (weekly) ==
Currently we have 88 CVEs on our radar, with two CVEs added and two CVEs retired this week.
