It's an excellent typeface, and so far, the latest LO stable version,
4.0.5, seems to work very well with it. (Despite its "Linux" name,
the font works just as well in Windows.) (Libertine has an equally excellent
 companion sans-serif font, Linux Bolinium G)

Using the advanced features requires adding extensions to the font
name, such as "Linux Libertine G:onum=1" to use old style numbers.

The Typography Toolbar extension makes its use easier.

This looks very useful, but I note that it hasn't been updated since
2010 and OOo (LO?) 3.4. Is it known to function with LO 4.1?
