The mic was recognized in the earlier version and I was able to use it. But after the upgrade, I have not been able to use my head set mic. I went to the sound settings for input and it is not listed there. The head set is listed in output.

Please try typing 'alsamixer' into a terminal. You may be able to see if your mic is muted from there.
