As the ppa is mentioned, here the current status and future plans for it:

The ppa contains 0.11 and its dependencies (mirrored from debian) but
currently only for oneiric and natty.

After oneiric is released (~2 weeks) I plan on pushing 0.11 or 0.12 to
the main archive quite early in the 12.04 LTS cycle.
I will then move 0.1[12] to my "stable" ipython ppa and probably support
lucid if possible too.
Then I can add more or less bleeding edge -dev versions to my
ipython-dev ppa including tornado and maybe mathjax (which hopefully
will be in debian soon:

Debian experimental packaging will probably be a bit less up to date as
I don't have direct uploads rights there.
