I'd like to try the new version but don't want to replace the old version. Are there any binaries I could use?

It is possible to install LibreOffice in a directory, and run it from there.

You could load up a virtual machine, install Ubuntu in it and consequently install the 3.4.0-beta5 .deb package in the Ubuntu install in the VM.

This method obviously won't replace the old version, but strictly speaking you are still installing LO 3.4.
