As the page you reference says:

"Note that, in LibreOffice 3.3, many great extensions that were formerly separate downloads have now been included in the package as standard features."

See Tools>>Extension Manager to check that it's installed. PDF files opened in LO open in Draw.

But a problem for me is that WIN Master Builds are shipped without PDF import. I do not know any possibility to get the separate extension.

@rrbd, that is a known bug, please see https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=48243

On Ubuntu or Debian, simply install the libreoffice-pdfimport package.

Do a parallel install of 3.5.3 (http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Installing_in_parallel)

Delete your current pdfimport folder under <yourlo install="">\share\extensions\ and copy the folder from the 3.5.3 share\extensions

You might need to execute LO two or three times to allow it to add PDFimport to the list of extensions ;)

Tested with version 3.6.0alpha0+ (Build ID: 8a78020) under Win XP Pro x86 SP3

In Ubuntu Lucid the libreoffice-pdfimport package is somehow unavailable in the libreoffice ppa. Installing the extension directly from the project page worked.
