Joseph Salisbury from Canonical said:
“For now, we’ll plan on targeting the v3.10 kernel for Saucy but will strongly re-evaluate a move to v3.11 in the coming months. We’ve just rebased Saucy to v3.10-rc2 and are still cleaning up some of the carnage. I don’t anticipate we’ll upload until a later -rc which will hopefully provide more stability,”
Despite that during the development on Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander, Canonical is using Kernel 3.10, they want/hope to release Saucy with Kernel 3.11.
As you may already know, Canonical has released Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail with Kernel 3.8, which has already reached end of life (EOL) and the users had to upgrade to Kernel 3.9.
Let’s hope they won’t make the mistake again, in choosing the kernel version.
