Linux Linux kernel 3.5 has been released. New features include support for metadata checksums in Ext4, userspace probes for performance profiling with systemtap/perf, a simple sandboxing mechanism that can filter syscalls, a new network queue management algorithm designed to fight bufferbloat, support for checkpointing and restoring TCP connections, support for TCP Early Retransmit (RFC 5827), support for android-style opportunistic suspend, btrfs I/O failure statistics, and SCSI over Firewire and USB. Here's the full list of changes.

Anyone knows why debian unstable (which I'm running) is still on 3.2?

If you want a newer kernel added to SID, just add the repos from aptosid-kernel. Then you get new kernels more often. And totally compatible with SID.
