We’re skipping a kernel SRU cadence to allow for an additional 3 weeks of testing for the kernel that will ship with the 12.04.2 point release.
However, due to regressions, we currently have new Precise, Quantal and lts-Quantal kernels in Testing.
Next week the regular SRU cycles will restart.

of images. All patches currently queued will be available in the first

include the v3.5.6 and v3.5.7 upstream stable patch sets as well as
additional misc bug fixes.

Status: Quantal Development Kernel

We have received a freeze exception and are planning to upload the
3.5.0-18.28 today. This will provide critical bug fixes for the 12.10
release. The bugs include:

  • 1063061 “please backport support for EFI vars ) 1KB”
  • 1061599 “beagle: omap3: usb is dead”
  • 1021471 “clone() hang when creating new network namespace”
  • 1030233 “not have bluetooth usb 0489:e046 Foxconn / Hon Hai”
  • 717970 “After sleep, key presses get lost and trackpad is jittery”
    As a reminder, because we are in kernel freeze, all patches are subject
    to the SRU policy and only critical bug fixes will warrent an upload.
    Non critical bug fixes and changes will be targetted to the first
    Quantal SRU kernel. As usual, all kernels 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 anyone to please install, test, and let us know your
    feedback.
