Java 7 (openjdk) gets a security update

Many people who have a need for Java, will already have switched to Java 8. Nevertheless there are still many places where Java 7 is preferred or even required. So, I am riding on the Q4 security updates for OpenJDK and used the recently released icedtea 2.6.8 to compile OpenJDK 7u121_b00 or “Java 7 Update 121 Build 00”. As […]

Slackware Live Edition 1.1.4 – based on slackware-current of 4 Nov 2016

Today I conclude my packaging frenzy with a new release of ‘liveslak‘. Version 1.1.4 is ready with only some minor tweaks. Users of the “iso2usb.sh” script on non-Slackware distros should be happy that the script finds all the required programs now.

Q4 2016 fixes for Java 8 (openjdk)

The icedtea project have released version 3.2.0 of their IcedTea build framework. This was done to mirror Oracle’s recent Critical Patch Update which brings OpenJDK to version 8u111_b14 or “Java 8 Update 111 Build 14”  (and the JRE too of course). Here is the long-ish list of security fixes and CVE‘s as taken from the announcement on Andrew Hughes’s blog: S8146490: Direct […]

You can use the latest KDE 5 on Slackware 14.2 and -current. My intention is to keep releasing versions of the stable Plasma 5 software through the “14.2/latest” and […]

LibreOffice 5.2.3 for Slackware-current

I wanted the latest LibreOffice in the upcoming Slackware Live Edition 1.1.4 (PLASMA 5 variant) so I have built and uploaded a set of packages for LibreOffice 5.2.3. They are for Slackware-current only. The announcement on the Document Foundation blog for this version is just a couple of days old. This is still considered bleeding edge: “LibreOffice […]
