I would like to update LibreOffice to 4.1 but I don't want to wait for Ubuntu to offer updates (it takes weeks sometimes)... what is PPA (repository) for LibreOffice 4.1 Official Release?

I installed it with the following commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/ppa
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Source: http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2013/07/libreoffice-4-1-released

However, I had problem with menu showing with delays of few seconds (https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=64565), so I removed it... I will wait for official release and hope it will be fixed...

This is getting way too complicated for my simple mind. Think I will wait for the Official release. However, I would like to have LibreOffice on my computer. Knowing that I have downloaded the latest and greatest version (but without the menus) can I just download the previous version or do I have to remove the new version. And, if so, how?

LibreOffice 4.1 is just released. i think we have wait some days and will be added in: https://launchpad.net/~libreoffice/+archive/ppa

Otherwise you can download and install .deb packages manually. But is better to wait for Official PPA.

https://plus.google.com/101094190333184858950/posts/LWKhrpJtuuJ has the answer:

https://launchpad.net/~libreoffice/+archive/ppa for Ubuntu 13.10 saucy, 13.04 raring, 12.04 LTS precise.

Versions were in the ppa with the release announcement.
