LibreOffice 5.0.0 and 4.4.5 for your Slackware box

Weekend treat: new LibreOffice packages for the latest releases from the Document Foundation. For our stable Slackware (which is 14.1 of course) I have packaged LibreOffice 4.4.5 which was announced at the end of July. Actually, these packages were already available in my repository for the past couple of days but I wanted to wait with […]
