Status: Quantal Development Kernel

We’ve recently uploaded the 3.5.0-8.8 Quantal kernel to the release
pocket. This upload includes misc bug fixes, upstream feature enablement
for Intel HW, and a sync of AUFS (even though we plan to keep it
disabled atm). This was also uploaded to the q-lts-backport [1] 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.
Important upcoming dates:
