Well, I have no idea what are plans for Ubuntu (you don't tell what
version you're using....sounds like 8.04) but I don't think there will
be official upgrades to 3.6 in that version of the distro.

So, you're either on your own rolling out your own packages or local
builds....or play russian roulette by using a random repository from
random people who backport packages....:-)

Or you can just continue using the quite rock solid version you have
right now.

My own servers are running 3.5 versions (most often Debian backports
or Debian official packages as they're all Debian "squeeze") and plans
to go to 3.6 are not meant for the immediate future.
