My version of LibreOffice is and 4.0.3 was released three days ago.

Should I add PPA in order to get updated or my Ubuntu 13.04 will update automatically after few days?

I would wait a while before upgrading just to see if there are any issues from such an upgrade. But to do the upgrade you would just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the command(s) below:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/libreoffice-4-0
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Before the upgrade

After the upgrade

Or you can just wait, and it will be upgraded automatically.

thanks Mitch... I understand that I can use those commands to update, but I wasn't sure if Ubuntu will do it automatically... – lilicus May 12 '13 at 21:11
