Its in ~arch. I installed ~3.2 a while ago. You would need to use the unstable breach to do this. Mixing stable and unstable can cause a good deal of trouble. Be sure you are willing to accept the headache before proceeding.

Here is how to mix branches, although if you want to just jump onto the unstable branch, you can just add a "~" in front of your architecture in your make.conf.

You would change this line from ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="amd64" to ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~amd64" assuming you are using amd64.

While the second option is easier, it may cause you some grief as well. Some unstable packages may be broken. If you choose to mix branches, you may get brakeage because of changes in packages.
