Just checked with yum, "-11" seems to be it unless you build it yourself:
Installed Packages
kernel.x86_64                                @fedora
kernel.x86_64                                @fedora
kernel.x86_64                                @updates
kernel.x86_64                     2.6.34-11.fc13                       installed
Available Packages
kernel.x86_64                     2.6.34-11.fc14                       rawhide

I'm not adverse to doing that, but not on a holiday weekend...
