I would like to have the latest stable/dev release of ALSA.

Can I do this via PPA?

So, I need a solution for stable versions and another one for latest releases, even they are unstable.

If you have a HDA Intel sound card, you can update to the latest ALSA release by following this guide, or going to this ppa and downloading the one for your Ubuntu version.

Adding the PPA to your sources is not advised, because it will try to update ALSA every second day.
