Call for Testing: Ubuntu LibreOffice packages

Now these points of data make a beautiful line.
And we're out of Beta.
We're releasing on time.

Yes, its true: We are out of Beta and we are releasing on time! And if you are adventurous, you can test the current LibreOffice 3.6.0 release candidate 1 from the LibreOffice prereleases PPA:

Please especially test all the fancy new things in this release!

One late feature (came in with beta3) I would like to especially point out are the new masterpages in Impress by Alexander Wilms, Mateus Machado Luna, Stefan Knorr and all the other cool guys on the LibreOffice design team. And before anyone screams "pics or it didnt happen!" -- here is a screenshot of them running on Ubuntu Quantal:

In addition, for the more conservative folks LibreOffice 3.5.5 rc3 (which is the final 3.5.5 version) has been updated to the LibreOffice PPA.
