Is the Marvell 88w8335 [Libertas] chipset natively supported on Linux?

I have a PCI Wireless Adapter from Netgear.

Model: Netgear WG311v3 802.11g Wireless PCI Adapter
Chipset: Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88w8335 [Libertas] 802.11b/g 
Wireless (rev 03)

Is there a native Linux driver for this chipset?

I have read and set it up using "ndiswrapper" but it uses old/outdated 
WinXP driver that uses WEP. Seeing as how WPA is better than WEP I was 
hoping that "Libertas" project would have been able to produce a native 
driver for this chipset.

If the developers have been able to support this natively on Linux could 
you please point me to how I can get the relevant drivers and install 
it? I use Ubuntu Trusty 14.04.

I tried reaching you guys on IRC but apparently no one hangs around 
there any more. Any replies are greatly appreciated.

Thank you all for your work on this project.
