LibreOffice Fresh

PPA description

LibreOffice test builds and backports

This PPA will have what the Document Foundation calls "LibreOffice fresh", the latest release of the newest series (but no alpha/beta releases).

There is a PPA dedicated to specific LibreOffice major series which support a range of older Ubuntu releases too: ("Still") ("Old Still")

Alpha and beta releases of a new major releases and the first release candidate of minor updates can be found at:

So much for other ppas.

Please file bugs for these packages on launchpad as described in:

This PPA might contain the release candidate that is assumed to become the final release even before it is declared so by the Document Foundation (e.g. usually release candidate 2 for minor updates).

Most of the packages in this PPA have only experienced minor testing -- in fact it is the place to enable a wider audience to test packages before they are published into the distro proper. In general, this PPA is _not_ for the average user to install without a closer look (if it would be, its packages would be in the main repositories). OTOH, it is _way_ _better_ to use packages from this PPA than using the *.deb files that The Document Foundation provides upstream, which are intentionally build against a very old baseline for maximum compatibility. So, _if_ you want to be on the bleeding edge, do it here, not with upstream *.debs.

In general, users are advised to take a look at the changelog for the details about a package. If there is a specific bug that is intended to be addressed by an update released into the PPA, you are encouraged to test, if the update solves that problem. Packages published after the distro release are mostly such specific fixes. Critical fixes will be SRUed into the main repositories after testing anyway (later, with more testing).

To return to the LibreOffice version from the main archive, use ppa-purge. see: for details
