I'm using 4.2.0, currently revision 1854799, for daily work on Xubuntu 18.04.2 64 bit - writing/editing
long booklength texts and preparing/editing/showing Impress presentations, with also some
trivial Calc work.  

It runs well, and has produced no unpleasantnesses.  I think it is ready for a first beta,
with the usual warnings about not being used for mission critical work
