Why isn't Firefox 8.0 available as an update in the Update Manager?

Is Firefox 8 available for Ubuntu 11.10? DO I have to change the PPA or something to get Firefox 8 for Ubuntu 11.10?

I still have Firefox 7 even though I updated (sudo aptitude update)

Thanks for answering my silly question.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

sorry! I didn't see that duplicate! Ok Actually, Firefox 8 has an issue with language packs and the release maintainer of Firefox is waiting for 8.0.1, which would happen very soon. –  Hanynowsky Nov 19 '11 at 19:48
