    Maybe there's a shortage of someone to do the work?

    I have the normal LibreOffice ppa which gave the upgrade to 4.0.1.1 just yesterday. I must say libreOffice is much faster than before, but haven't really explored new features.

    LibreOffice 4.0.1 is now available through the main PPA:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/ppa

    ...the Unity appmenu is working too!

    I have found it Quicker to just Download the deb files from http://www.libreoffice.org/download/?nodetect and install LibreOffice manually.

    Sometimes it takes forever for the PPA's to get updated. (I'm impatient)

    Plus you cant get much easier than "sudo dpkg -i *.deb" to install it.

    Just follow the instructions in the README file included in the Download and you should be fine.

    Document Foundation keeps touting its compatibility with DOC & DOCX. But there's one item -- so simple, so basic, so elementary, so freaking uncomplicated and obvious -- that, to my knowledge, they still haven't done anything about it. Is it possible to vertically center text without creating boxes, frames and balancing spoons on ones nose? Conversely, up through 3.6, if I vertically centered a wee tiny period ---> . <--- with Word, just one little pixel (not even a DOCX file but DOC), and tried to open it with LO. LO would barf all over my laptop. Has this changed?

    The manual download didn't have support for the Unity appmenu. Don't know whether they've fixed it yet...

    It isn't. That is, the menu is indeed hidden in the top bar, but you cannot open it using the usual hotkeys, e.g. alt+f to open the file menu. For this reason, I still disable the global menu, although I like it very much if it works well as in other applications.

    I guess that is this issue https://www.libreoffice.org/bugzilla...g.cgi?id=36117

    If you have a simple doc/docx file with vertically aligned text that LO fails to open attach it to the bug.
