12.04 was released on 26/4/12 not in October.  12.10 was released in
October and Puppets release was after the feature freeze.  You will
need to wait until 13.04.  It has nothing to do with being slow, it
has to do with them either releasing before the feature freeze or
having to wait until the next release cycle.  Typically a feature
freeze happens 1-2 months before release... so if puppet releases 3.0
in October there is no reason for it to make it into 12.10 (in that
case) because there were probably no super important security updates
that mandated an extreme exception.
