Hello I am curious if Ubuntu 11.10 will get Kernel 3.1 via updates when it hits stable release?

You can check the current status of the included kernel at

Since oneiric is scheduled to be released in less than a week, it will likely come with a 3.0 kernel. If you want to install 3.1, you can do so from the kernel team's ppa.

In addition to phihag's links, the kernel version was announced to the ubuntu development list as being 3.0
