You are about to add the following PPA to your system:
LibreOffice 4.3.x series stable backports ppa (and SRU-testing for utopic)

This ppa will:
- not contain alpha and beta releases like 4.3.0~beta2
- not contain updates to the next major (4.4.x)
- contain minor release updates and their release candidates -- these can be
considered stable
Note that for minor release updates (4.3.1, 4.3.2, 4.3.3 ...) an rc2 is almost always exactly the same as the final version.

See: for details,
and: and for new features and fixes.
