No great mystery.

If they are more conservative--LibreOffice 4.2.6 is a solid build, somewhat lacking in the latest 
office features.

If they have more tolerance for change, and accept the potential for some as yet undescribed bugs 
affecting use, then early adoption of the 4.3.0 branch is a reasonable choice.

Both are good well tested software packages.

Interesting answer.

I think you're saying that 4.2.6 is essentially bugfree, but 4.3.x is not.

I suppose that an "undescribed" bug is one that the LO developers dd not
discover during their testing, and that we users are the next test bed.
I generally eschew programs with version numbers ending in 0, for that
very reason.

I just checked and I see that I have v4.0.1.2. "Check for updates" tells
me that 4.2.5 (no typo!) is available for manual downloading. Where are
4.2.6 and 4.3.0?
