Questions on Ask Ubuntu are expected to relate to Ubuntu within the scope defined by the community. Consider editing the question or leaving comments for improvement if you believe the question can be reworded to fit within the scope. Read more about reopening questions here.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

You might want to expand your question by editing it to include information about the specific functionality you need. There might be another way to get things working, besides downgrading, that someone could suggest. If there is a bug report (or reports) about the broken functionality, you could include links there too. – Eliah Kagan Jul 11 '12 at 15:41
If the latest version has a regression, a bug report needs to be filed. – Thomas W. Jul 11 '12 at 15:47
