Yes, that's the one I installed recently and it can import PDF files 
into Draw on 11.10. Results vary in quality and you may have to restart 
LibO for it to get activated. Otherwise, open the software centre, find 
the LibreOffice meta-package, go to info and you will see that at the 
bottom of the add-ons list, there is a PS and PDF converter. I haven't 
tried that one so don't know how well it works.
