Hi,
I have added LibreOffice 4.1 PPA to Ubuntu 12.04 using command sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/libreoffice-4-1 then I installed LibreOffice.

As I see on Ubuntu from Help | About there is version 4.1.1.2, but in my Windows machine I have the latest 4.1.3.2. Is there some plan to backport to PPA the latest stable version to Ubuntu 12.04? Thanks

There never was any official support for builds outside the official repositories, but I do releases of LibreOffice for the matching Ubuntu releases (e.g. Ubuntu 13.10 and LibreOffice 4.1.x, Ubuntu 13.04 and LibreOffice 4.0.x) in the PPA. Rico ( https://launchpad.net/~ricotz ) does the backports to older releases as time and motivation allow as a community contributor.

Thanks a lot. Now I see PPA was updated to 4.1.3.2 on Ubuntu 12.04. https://launchpad.net/~libreoffice/+archive/libreoffice-4-1

But as I have also found out that there is personal Rico's PPA that LibreOffice lands in first, most probably for testing purposes: https://launchpad.net/~ricotz/+archive/ppa

Yes, dont use Ricos staging PPA though, as it might have incomplete comtents (e.g. if amd64 is finished and i386 is stil building). We are copying the stuff over to another ppa for a reason ;)
