Well given that Ubuntu would be marking it as LTS I guess it's a
question for them.  I think there are so many changes between the major
revisions (3.0 -> 3.2) you often can't just upgrade and it'll work like
you can with the minor revisions.

I don't know why they don't make new versions available for people
installing from scratch, but perhaps they can answer that question.
