Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

Specifically, will LibreOffice version 3.5 be included in Pangolin (12.04)?

but more generally - I don't know how to determine what software packages are present in various Ubuntu releases.

Is that information available somewhere?

Version 3.5.2.

You can see package versions on launchpad - for example, here: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libreoffice

On the command line:

rmadison -u ubuntu -s precise [packagename]

for example

 rmadison -u ubuntu -s precise libreoffice

will output

libreoffice | 1:3.5.2-2ubuntu1 |       precise | source, amd64, armel, armhf, i386, powerpc

Or from a precise install - look at the applications Help - About

for example:

LibreOffice about dialog

You can also get an early overview at: blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/… -- or for the next release blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/… –  Bjoern Michaelsen Apr 23 '12 at 16:04

It will be LibreOffice 3.5.1
