OOoRC4 is due out middle of Oct. With any luck that will become OOo3.0.
When you will see those in Ubuntu repositories is unknown as Ubuntu uses
the Novell/ximian/go-ooo builds instead of the OpenOffice.org builds.
But I wouldn't guess that you will see OOo(U)3.0 in Hardy as it's an
LTS. You probably will only see it in Intrepid - but hopefully I'm wrong.
If you'd like to give OOoRC3 a spin the debs are available here:
You can install that side-by-side to your Ubuntu OOo without either
affecting the other. The OOo3RC3 will install into your /opt directory
and the program files will be located in /opt/openoffice.org3/program.
OOoRC3 will create a separate ~/.openoffice.org/3/user folder so it does
not interfere with your existing ~/.openoffice.org2/user folder.
I recommend that you join the OOo users list (via gmane nntp is
recommended as sometimes it's a very high volume list):
