As per the LibreOffice 4.1 ReleaseNotes, there is a new Experimental feature: Sidebar with resizeable layout. How can it be activated?

Thanks for the answer. Is there any way to activate the side bar only in the selected component. For example sidebar activated in writer and not in calc?

It is an experimental option. You can play enable/disable from a calc file before open/create other files.

Just a note to indicate that since v4.2.x the sidebar is displayed by default and no longer requires the indicated experimental option.

On Mac OSX it's a different way, click On "LibreOffice" on the toolbar at the top of the screen, near the Apple, then choose "Preferences..." Unscroll "LibreOffice" on the left side (or double clic on it ) select "Advanced" and check the check-box "Enable experimental sidebar (on restart )" Then accept the restart question and you got it
