How to upgrade to Emacs 24.1?

emacs24 seems to bring quite a lot of minor improvements over the last version. I know there are already ppa's to easily install it but are there any chances that it will be backported to ubuntu 12.04? where should I make a request or should I make a request for this?

also does anyone know what version is shipping with 12.10?


Here is how to install the quantal emacs24 release on 12.04 :

sudo -s  cp /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list-original  echo "deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu quantal main restricted multiverse universe" >> /etc/apt/sources.list  aptitude update  aptitude install emacs24  cp /etc/apt/sources.list-original /etc/apt/sources.list
