After the release of Ubuntu 12.04 updates should be available in the stable XBMC PPA above and XBMC can be updated by adding the PPA and updating your system.
The main XBMC PPA has been updated with the latest stable releases.
If you want to compile xbmc in Ubuntu, the following worked for me:
Downloading And Compiling xbmc
although you can install xbmc in 12.04 via software-center or
Note: Reboot after compiling for the XBMC icon to appear!
For Ubuntu 12.04 & 12.10 you can use the following PPA from here: XBMC Nightly : Nathan Rennie-Waldock
I recommend this one because:
This are the problems I was having with XBMC that came with 12.04. This is because most of this problems are fixed in the Git repository but not yet applied to a stable release. This version however is very stable for me. Tested with 900+ movies, 8000+ songs and 17 TV series. Downloaded cover arts for all, lyrics, subtitles, etc.. No problem, not even one. The remote controller for android also worked perfectly.
