We intend to upload the 3.5.0-12.12 Quantal kernel before the end of the week.
The most notable changes in this kernel will be updates to the brcmsmac and
apple-gmux drivers, a fix for CVE-2012-3412, and misc bug fixes. As usual, we
will also upload this to the ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/q-lts-backport PPA to facilitate
testing of the 12.10 kernel in 12.04. Please test and let us know your results.
We received a freeze exception this week and uploaded the 3.5.0-17.28
kernel. This most notably contained some critical bug fixes for the
following:

 * Bug:1061599 - beagle: omap3: usb is dead
 * Bug:1021471 - clone() hang when creating new network namespace
 * Bug:1030233 -not have bluetooth usb 0489:e046 Foxconn / Hon Hai
 * Bug:717970 - After sleep, key presses get lost and trackpad is jittery

As usual, we also uploaded this kernel to the
ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/q-lts-backport PPA to facilitate testing of the
12.10 kernel in 12.04. Please test and let us know your results.

As well as the 3.5.0-12.12 upload, we will likely plan a final kernel upload
next Tues in preparation for Quantal Beta-1 freeze.
Nothing at this time.
