I can see that UP7 is near, it's in "incoming" repos of LMDE, as announced on viewtopic.php?f=187&t=144198.
LO there will be upgraded from 3.5.4 (UP6) to 4.0.3-3 (UP7). I would even say that's too much. Current stable LO is 3.6.7. Even LO 4.0.5 has a lot of new bugs, not to mention LO 4.1.1. As a LO user, I'd pick last supported release which is 3.6.7. now.
LO in http://packages.debian.org/testing/editors/ is currently 4.1.0-5 and there is no LO in http://packages.debian.org/experimental/editors/. LO 4.1.x is not a good choice for everyday use, so it's good it's not in UP7.
BTW very good LMDE FAQ post at viewtopic.php?f=197&t=91405.

As I explained in viewtopic.php?f=143&t=171461&p=888459#p888459 : "What is important is to upgrade to LO 4.2.x versions as they become available and NOT to upgrade to LO 4.3.x at least until 4.3.4 or 4.3.5 because those early versions are buggy. " Yes, you get new features, but you also get data loss, which is unacceptable.
