Another stable version of Linux Kernel has been released recently. Linux Kernel 3.3.6 comes with more improvements and bug fixes. You can refer to this page for full changelog. You can also find here kernel deb packages so that you can perform a manual installation.

In response to users requests for the installation of the Linux Kernel over PPA, we have created a custom repository so that you can easily install or remove the Linux Kernel under Ubuntu 12.04/11.10.

Warning: Install from this PPA at your own risk. We are not liable for any damage that this installation may cause to your system!
